Joe
David Wingo and David Gordon Green roll pretty deep. The composer scored the director's first feature, "George Washington," and the pair have collaborated numerous times over the years on "All the Real Girls," "Snow Angels," "The Sitter" and last year's "Prince Avalanche." Their working relationship continues with the forthcoming "Joe," and before you see the movie this weekend, you can treat your ears to the music.

2013: 15 Best Film Scores
Even as frequent soundtrack-listeners, it's only at the end of the year when we come to take stock of the various scores that have passed through our ear canals over the previous twelve months that it's possible to get a measure of the state of composition for film. Which is to say that, having spent the last few days relistening to some of the major scores of 2013, it's been a fantastic year.

As initially chaotic the career choices of David Gordon Green appear, it should also be noted that the director maintains a consistent roster of collaborators. His latest film, “Prince Avalanche” starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, features much of the same crew from Green's “George Washington” days, and one of them — composer David Wingo — even scored his student short film. It's a loyal group of talent, and so it is with little surprise that Green will tackle a new curveball project with regulars, while hinting at a few intriguing others.

Prince Avalanche
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.

One of the most intriguing movies of the year seems to have arrived out of thin air. Last week it was revealed that David Gordon Green had teamed up with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch and shot a movie completely under the radar. "Prince Avalanche," a remake of the Icelandic film "Either Way" ("Á annan veg"), follows two highway maintenance men who work together in the barren wilderness, and chronicles their evolving friendship. We figured this might be just a low-key indie that Green will get out there before starting work this fall on his "Suspiria" remake, but now there's an exciting new twist.

Just recently when discussing composer Mychael Danna's excellent score for the humanist sports drama, "Moneyball," we lamented the fact that writing about soundtracks isn't always easy, as often they're not the sexiest topic in the world. However, maybe we'll be putting that theory to the test in the fall of 2011.
