A Leak on the New Moon October 12, 2009

The New Moon soundtrack has leaked online, and as the roster of bands announced before its release suggested, it’s really quite an exciting one.

I’m not sure how the soundtrack producers managed to get so many talented names on board, but somehow they did. Improving quite vastly from the first soundtrack’s collection of artists, the tracklisting name checks every indie artist from Grizzly Bear to Death Cab for Cutie.

Even more outstanding is the fact that every song is original and exclusive to the soundtrack, although I have my questions about Muse’s I Belong to You, which is labelled here as a “New Moon Remix” but is really just a shortened version, omitting the Mon Coeur S’ouvre a Voix portion.

The major difference with this soundtrack in comparison with the first is that it’s a lot more sombre and downbeat, which (groan) in some ways reflects the tone of the second book.

The stand-out tracks, predictably, are Bon Iver and St. Vincent’s Roslyn, Thom Yorke’s Hearing Damage, Grizzly Bear’s Slow Life and Editors’ No Sound but the Wind. This could change for me, however, as I haven’t had a good listen to some of the tracks. The good news is, however, that there doesn’t seem to be any duds.

Listen to Bon Iver & St. Vincent and Grizzly Bear’s contributions below.
