Richard Linklater's upcoming "Boyhood" is truly an epic in almost every sense. Shot over the course of a decade, the film tracks the coming-of-age of a young boy in cinematic "real time," with the movie stretching to nearly three hours to envelope you in the world Linklater has put together. And so, it's only fitting that the soundtrack is equally huge and wide-ranging.

Boyhood

Richard Linklater's upcoming "Boyhood" is truly an epic in almost every sense. Shot over the course of a decade, the film tracks the coming-of-age of a young boy in cinematic "real time," with the movie stretching to nearly three hours to envelope you in the world Linklater crafted. So it's only fitting that the soundtrack is equally huge and wide-ranging.

Ranging from big name acts like Coldplay, Arcade Fire, Vampire Weekend, Foo Fighters and Wilco, to indie heroes like Cat Power and Yo La Tengo, to Latino artists like Freddy Fender (classic), the tunes compiled by music supervisor Meghan Currier (who worked as a music coordinator on the equally massive lineup for "The Wolf Of Wall Street") does a solid job of compressing a decade's worth of pop hits and underground faves into a pretty good collection. If you need ideas for your next mixtape, look no further.

It's worth noting that an earlier cut of the film included Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" and OutKast's "Hey Ya," with the former sticking out like a sore thumb. 

Check out all the songs below and samples on page two. "Boyhood" opens on July 11th.
