let’s talk about this film for a second.

i’ve seen many-a-comment discussing how “weird” or “strange” it looks. or just having an aversion to the idea of the film in general. and, it seriously breaks my heart.

because there is nothing weird or strange about this film. it’s beautifully shot. the set design and costumes are stunning. the use of color is perfect. scarlett johansson is stunning as samantha, and the amazing part is that you never actually see her in the film. but you can feel her.

the storyline is impeccable. its a beautiful metaphor for our relationship with people and technology. and, all this talking about the movie only makes me want to go see it in theaters again. it is most certainly a film i will be purchasing once available.

and, let’s talk about the score for a second, because, wow. it was produced by a few members of arcade fire, and is perfect. it adds the perfect element of emotion and feeling to the already beautiful storyline. and, you’re in luck, because you can stream it on 8tracks. it makes for great, mellow work music, bath and a glass of wine music, reading on the bus music, or if you’re just looking for something beautiful to listen to. so, go. and, listen. you can thank me later.

Spike Jonze’s Her (OST) from Kinceyk on 8tracks Radio.

new music tuesday, october 29

i don’t even know where to start with the summation of this year in music, and we’re at october 29th, folks. but, i mean, between daft punk, the national, head and the heart, my bloody valentine, and now arcade fire. ugh. seriously.

arcade fire. thank you arcade fire for your after-SNL special a few weeks back. seriously made my weekend. not to mention the amazing cameos. and, let’s also not forget the preview of four (yes, four) new tracks off of this album at that same time. “after life?” yes, please. you already had me sold with “reflecktor.” your haitian music influence and disco feel immediately make this album an A++ in my books.

grade: A++
