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 has put together. And so, it's only fitting that the soundtrack is equally huge and wide-ranging.

Boyhood
During the first screening of Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" at the Sundance Film Festival in January, one of the observations made from the audience during the Q&A was the jam-packed soundtrack of indie-rock songs, Coldplay, Wilco, The Flaming Lips, Jeff Tweedy, The Arcade Fire, and so on and so forth; songs that worked like chapters of the beginning of each new year in this twelve-year saga. During said Q&A, Linklater noted that he had not attained licenses for all the songs in the film yet and cautioned that the music may not be final.

The pairing of Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend might not seem immediately organic, but as it turns out, bassist Chris Baio is very, distantly related to the actor. Small world. Anyway, they've used that connection to rope Buscemi into directing their upcoming concert webcast and to help get their word, they've cut together a pretty amusing little promo.

Here's your unlikely actor/director and musician pairing for the day: Steve Buscemi and Vampire Weekend. If you believe a recent tweet from the band, Buscemi is a distant cousin of the bassist Chris Baio (who is actually related Scott Baio) but mostly, they were just excited to team up with with actor for some "showbiz synergy." Well, they have.

SXSW is barely 24 hours away from starting (catch up with part one and part two of our preview pieces here), and at this point, it's important to be reminded that one of the things that makes it unique is a particular focus on the crossover between music and film, something that's been a particular interest of ours since the very earliest days of The Playlist. It doesn't just have a whole sidebar dedicated to music documentaries (with this year's batch including films around LCD Soundsystem, Paul Simon and Big Star), and a music festival that runs alongside, but it also seems to attract a disproportionate number of scores by indie and rock musicians to its fictional entries.

Being a first time feature filmmaker ain't easy, and you need to do everything possible to get attention for your film. Lucky then for Zal Batmanglij who didn't have to look very far to get some major indie rock talent to score his debut feature film.
