Canadian goliaths Arcade Fire are streaming a new song from the upcoming soundtrack to the Hunger Games here:
As taken from Entertainment Weekly:
"Entertainment Weekly scored a nice little treat by posting one of the new Arcade Fire tracks from the forthcoming soundtrack to “The Hunger Games”. Oddly, it immediately reminded me of the “Romeo + Juliet” soundtrack from back when I was a teenager, then reading the interview Win Butler, they cited that as an inspiration (Radiohead’s “Exit Music” to be precise). Smart move. As for the track itself, it’s an eerie, dark, and atmospheric piece that has one foot in a youthful, choir - marching band sound and the other in a sinister sounding blend of americana and space rock. It’s definitely a cool song that seems to evoke the themes of the book and film. It’s good stuff. Press play and check it out."
Hope it's good.
LOL I went on and listened to this song called Violet Fire from CSLSX or something following that, thinking it was part of Arcade Fire's... oops
Honestly that Violet Fire song was more interesting though. Even though it sounded like a mix of 65daysofstatic and Spirited Away's soundtrack, thought of Yoko Kanno for some reason too.
Arcade Fire's was dull, but Suburbs had awesome songs and boring songs. So maybe there's hope? And maybe it's serving some movie purpose we don't know about.
i need to check this band out, i've heard nothing but great things
Digging: Edan - Beauty and the Beat
^ you've never heard any of their material, yet?! D:
check out funeral, ffs! haha
Cool song, goes well with the story (if I had read the book listening to that, maybe I wouldn't have noticed the meh style of writing so much)
"Honestly that Violet Fire song was more interesting though. Even though it sounded like a mix of 65daysofstatic and Spirited Away's soundtrack"
You say that as if the Spirited Away soundtrack isn't good. BUT SURELY YOU DIDN'T MEAN THAT.
oh WOW this was a boring song, WHEW, I mean...my goodness
song was meh. i'm about to start reading these books.
Dangit. I got excited thinking there was a new album soon. I actually realized it would be for this
soundtrack specifically right before the page loaded though. I know they've been going for a high-
class indie vibe with this soundtrack.
not bad not great
Hunger Games is like Twilight for hipsters
Of course Arcade Fire are on the soundtrack
Digging: Barrow - Though I'm Alone
Digging: The Dillinger Escape Plan - Ire Works At Olive Garden
wtf how haven't i heard this
that shit was terrible
Digging: Stereolab - Transient Random-Noise Bursts with Announcements
meh. i liked the first few songs on The Suburbs but everything else from this band is pretty boring.
@kill legit question, what do you like that isn't old school or metal?
Yo haters I love this band and this song was just fine :3
completely different. thats always good (almost). I liked this
"Hunger Games is like Twilight for hipsters"
... I won't bother responding to this one... :P
Digging: City Of Ifa - Self Titled
Why not? It's also Young Adult Fiction aimed at teenagers and pre-teens with below average reading ability
@ TMobotron all the way up there: No I didn't mean that at all. Spirited Away's soundtrack was epic, so while that song reminded me of it I kept thinking 'I could just get my Joe Hisaishi and have a better song'
But Violet Fire was much better than Arcade Fire still
fucking love the hunger games.
us canadians have many GOLIATHS
Digging: Daylight Dies - A Frail Becoming
until the vocals start it sounds like just about every sonic youth song ever.
after that it sounds like a soundtrack song
The first one reads like Maximum Ride (with a better story). Then everything interesting suddenly runs away and leaves Twilight: Redux. You can tell that this author doesn't really know or care about hunger or oppression and all those heavy themes by the time that girl goes from:
'Problem of the day: Little Sister was Chosen' and 'District 11 is being beaten by the guards' to 'Problem of the day: Peeta's hurt and ignoring me' 'I let the guy I don't have feelings for kiss me and now maybe I have feelings for him' 'I should run away with him but what would Peeta think' 'I should see Peeta but what would he think'
BITCHFORK I MISSED YOU!!!!
really cool stuff
