48. Regarding elusive birds

This morning I came across a soundtrack that has piqued my interest so much I want to go and see the film itself.

Woodpecker is described as being an "existential tragicomedy", co-written and directed by Alex Karpovsky. The film score is composed by James Lavino, along with Colin Greenwood, bass player for Radiohead, and the Sargent twins of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah.

You can listen to six of the tracks on James Lavino's Myspace page. The arrangements are quietly beautiful, acoustic guitar based pieces, with soft orchestral instruments and synthesizer swirling through the background.

Picture sunlight flickering through the leaves of trees in slow motion.

Or just go listen. That would probably give you a better idea.

Oh wow. DIG it.

Colin never gets as much attention as Thom or Johnny, but he's a damn good bass player and it makes me happy to find that he's got a musical life outside of Radiohead.

You always find such interesting music, lady. Mad props to you and your musical sleuthing.
