Jim Jarmusch Is Going To Drop An Album Of Crazy Experimental Lute Jams

You certainly can't put Jim Jarmusch into any kind of box. The filmmaker, musician, All Tomorrow's Parties curator and shining example of New York City cool has always marched to the beat of his own drum, but even we could never have guessed a move like this.

You certainly can't put Jim Jarmusch into any kind of box. The filmmaker, musician, All Tomorrow's Parties curator and shining example of New York City cool has always marched to the beat of his own drum, but even we could never have guessed a move like this.

Tiny Mix Tapes reveals Jarmusch has collaborated with Dutch minimalist composer/lute player Josef Van Wissem for the upcoming, awesomely titled album "The Joy That Never Ends." That's right, Jarmusch is getting baroque on your ass. It's been a while since our subscription to Wire magazine ran out (that shit's expensive) so we have no idea who this Wissem dude is but he's worked with folks like James Blackshaw and Keiji Haino which should give you some kind of frame of reference. In lute circles, Wissem is the shit and Jarmusch will be helping on guitar and feedback.

Anyway, if you're curious, the album drops on CD and limited LP on June 28th via Important Records. You can check out the full tracklisting and a sample tune right here and you know what? It sounds pretty damn delightful. And while we're talking about Jarmusch, can we get an update on what's going on with that vampire movie he's supposed to be making with Michael Fassbender, Tilda Swinton, Mia Wasikowska and John Hurt?

"The Joy that Never Ends" Tracklisting

01. The Joy that Never Ends
02. His is the Ecstasy
03. Concerning the Beautiful Human Form After Death
04. Concerning the Precise Nature of Truth
05. The Hearts of the Daughters Are Returned to their Mothers
06. The Great Joy (CD-only bonus track)
