Savages Soundtrack

It’s the soundtrack to Oliver Stone’s Savages–the movie hits this week, the soundtrack hits as well. It’s out from Varese Sarabande. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:

In anticipation of three-time Oscar®-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone’s return to the screen with the ferocious thriller Savages, the original motion picture soundtrack features an eclectic group of musicians including legends such as Bob Dylan, Peter Tosh and Massive Attack, alongside the critically acclaimed Cut Copy and Yuna. Adam Peters, a former member of the groundbreaking band Echo and the Bunnymen, provides the unique dramatic score. His composition credits include Stone’s South Of The Border and the documentary After Porn Ends, and his distinctive palette combining electric cello, analogue synths and other original instruments that he plays gives the film a genuinely modern and yet still classic dimension. The music was chosen by supervisor Budd Carr, longtime collaborator of Oliver Stone and known for his work on more than 80 films (Platoon, Wall Street, Money Never Sleeps & The Doors) as well as Showtime’s Californication.
