Music from the Motion Picture Garden State Includes Songs from Coldplay, Nick Drake, The Shins, Simon & Garfunkel & More!
For the first time ever on vinyl, the Grammy® Award Winning soundtracks 10-year Anniversary Edition is presented as 2LP on 180-gram audiophile vinyl with a new handwritten note from Zach Braff.
Writer and director Zach Braff does a masterful job matching the charming, heartfelt tone of films like The Graduate and Rushmore in his motion picture debut, Garden State, so it only makes sense that the music he personally compiled for the soundtrack plays just as of big a part here as it did in those films. Simon & Garfunkel's languorous "The Only Living Boy in New York" is an obvious thread, but aside from Nick Drake's "One of These Things First," Braff is able to carry the mood without getting tripped up in the past. Frou Frou's "Let Go" and Zero 7's "In the Waiting Line" supply soft techno touches, while Iron & Wine's "Such Great Heights" and former Men at Work singer Colin Hay's "I Just Don't Think I'll Ever Get Over You" offer understated angst. It's the pair of emotionally racked contributions from the Shins ("Caring Is Creepy," "New Slang"), however, that really make this compilation a must-have.
The 2004 film stars Natalie Portman, Peter Sarsgaard, Ian Hom and Zach Braff. Braff wrote and directed the comedy drama which centers on a 26-year old actor/waiter who returns to his hometown in New Jersey after his mother dies.
