soundtrack: Different Drum

No clue about this movie at all, but this soundtrack CD has some decent lo-fi rock, handmade pop, and cinematic indie. Hypocrite in a Hippy Crypt’s “The Town Crazies” is gentle, optimistic drum machine pop. The Hardy Tree’s “Around the Steeple” is more post-rock/contemporary classical, with spare layers of violin, acoustic guitars, pianos, electronics, and vocals. The Underground Youth’s tracks are dark solo goth rock. Del Mas Alla’s “Dreams” is hissy, sloppy, atmospheric lo-fi dream pop with alternately serene and noisy guitars and flat smashy drums. Ubi Escalona’s “We’re All Waiting For Something” is a pretty organ instrumental with a soft chiming melody. “Long Gone” by The Hardy Tree is a pretty waltz-time song that feels like tiptoeing through a mystical forest. Of the 3 Xray Eyeballs songs, “Broken Beds” is faster and thrashier and more fun. “Flying With the Swallows” by Ubi Escalona is a haunting instrumental with reversed melodies and birds chirping. Del Mas Alla’s “Our Times” is sloppy Oh Sees-like garage rock. Home Blitz’s “Perpetual Night” is tight Wire-like post-punk pop which ends with a brief “Stairway to Heaven” quote. Likewise, The Underground Youth’s “Crash (BSA Jam)” is slow solo boogie-rock which dips into “Sympathy For The Devil” a bit.
