The New Moon Soundtrack is Awesome?

by Eliza C. Thompson
New Moon SoundtrackI know, I know, it’s Twilight, and Bella Swan is probably the most anti-feminist character in the history of ‘literature,’ but this soundtrack is GOOD! The last one was laughably terrible and full of your standard Hot Topic fare: Paramore, Linkin Park, and a mid-90s-esque ballad from R-Patz himself. But this one’s got original tunes from the likes of Thom Yorke, Lykke Li, and Bon Iver and St. Vincent. I know, right?

My personal favorite is ‘Slow Life’ by Grizzly Bear featuring Victoria Legrand of Beach House. I heard them do this song live last weekend and had no idea it had anything to do with New Moon — this shiz was so beautiful it nearly had me in tears. You can stream the whole thing on Twilight’s MySpace page, and if anybody gives you crap about it, just tell them you’re only there for the tunes. If you’re there for the trailer — well, I won’t tell anyone.
