More music picks for your Monday. If you like what you hear, use the links provided to snag it for yourself from Amazon. Doing so through us gives us kickbacks, and those help pay for stuff like gas for the furnace (because it’s bloody cold). And more music.
Three picks from Minister of Music Rob Levy this week. First up, from the “Gorillaz iPad album,” The Fall. It was recorded using an iPad (along with additional instruments) and then released for free online. This is the video for the first “virtual single,” “Phoner to Arizona.”
Apparently a physical variation of the album will be available next year.
Next up, the amazing Inception soundtrack from Hans Zimmer. I strongly urge you check out the bonus bits from the Blu-Ray (I don’t think they come on the DVD as well, didn’t get both, can’t say for certain) where Zimmer and Nolan talk about what went into creating the score for the film. It’s quite impressive. So is the horn section. Here’s “Dream is Collapsing.”
And lastly, a classic bit from The Smiths. “Please Please Let Me Get What I Want,” in this case taken from the compilation Louder Than Bombs.
Louder Than Bombs is available from Amazon as a CD.
