Smoke Notes

This suitably dreamy soundtrack to Sofia Coppola's tale of lost souls in the Metropolis that is Tokyo marks the return of Kevin Shields, founder of seminal noise outfit My Bloody Valentine, contributing four new songs and the classic "Sometimes", from My Bloody Valentine's best LP, 'Loveless'. His scored elements are perfectly matched to the neon and concrete of the modern urban landscape, conjuring up sounds both frightening and hypnotic, beautiful and resonant, it transports the listener to a world where we feel alone in a crowded city. More moody electronics come in the form of "Kaze Wo Astumete" by Happy End, a side project of Yellow Magic Orchestra's Haruomi Hosono, and has the Jesus & Mary Chain's "Just Like Honey" ever sounded so good ? Its gothic undertones are suited well to the sombre setting. Other contributors include Squarepusher, whose "Tommib" sounds like nothing else, while Death In Vegas provide the breakbeat funk of "Girls". Air, who scored Coppola's debut film 'The Virgin Suicides', give the the soundtrack its most touching moment, the truly stunning "Alone In Kyoto", a warm textured slice of ambient bliss. Not only is the film one of the years very best, its soundtrack is also among the finest released in some time, album producer Brian Reitzell has done a fine job selecting a sublime range of contributors, and the whole album is a pleasure from start to finish. Recommended.
