Emerging from nowhere to become a Sundance hit, as well as a step forward from the director's left-of-center mainstream work, David Gordon Green's comedy “Prince Avalanche” also finds him in league with past musical collaborators. The talents of Explosions In The Sky and “Take Shelter” composer David Wingo were announced last June, and as the film gears up for release this summer, you can take a look at what the soundtrack has in store.
Though Green previously used the music of Explosions In The Sky in “All The Real Girls” and “Snow Angels,” while Wingo scored both of those films in addition to “George Washington” and “The Sitter,” “Prince Avalanche” marks the first time both have collaborated on a project. The film stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as two workers confined to fixing a desolate Texas road, and while we were great fans of the film in general at Sundance, we also enjoyed the “wistful and sonorously beautiful” score by Wingo and Explosions within.
The album collects 15 tracks for release on August 6th. Take a look at the tracklist below, and catch “Prince Avalanche” as it hits cinemas (via Magnolia Pictures) on August 9th. [Consequence of Sound]
