having a rick ross song as the leadoff from the soundtrack about a movie dealing with a freed slave who’s now a bounty hunter, is well – a little bold. but the jamie foxx-produced single fits in perfectly.
the soundtrack is out 12/18, the film is out a week later on christmas day.
the dark knight rises drops on july 20th, but get to know the score with esteemed composer hans zimmer in his latest endeavor to accompany a christopher nolan film. don’t worry, no spoilers in the song titles.

while daft punk’s management may not be happy about the forthcoming remix album tron: legacy r3configur3d, out on walt disney records of course, that hasn’t stopped ambient shoegazers m83 from contributing their take on the electronic duo’s “fall.” check it out below.
daft punk – fall [m83 remix]
i finally got around to seeing darren aronofsky’s latest film venture the black swan this past week, thanks to all the hype and rave reviews surrounding it. i definitely give two thumbs up for all the hype involved, as i enjoyed it thoroughly. and no, it isn’t JUST because of kunis and portman. i made note during the movie that i’d download the soundtrack as soon as i got home. though it’s been out for a while, you can stream the entire thing (as performed and composed by clint mansell, who’s worked on soundtracks for all of aronofsky’s films) at the empire website, who’s currently busy promoting the UK release of the movie.
bored to death is a comedy series on hbo that stars the likes of three fine gentleman; jason schwartzman, ted dansen and zack galifianakis. to keep it brief, schwartzman plays a guy who’s…bored and puts up phony craigslist ads looking for detective work and for the most part, hilarity and shenanigans ensue. as is the case with most shows (especially on HBO), the soundtrack is full of feel-good tunes and tiny soundbites of the quirks found within episodes. (see: ted dansen saying that ‘his feet feel interesting’ while under the influence of marijuana) also, i’d like to extend a huge plea to HBO to release a soundtrack for eastbound and down. i cannot get enough of that mexican surf rock.
in any case, spinner has the entire soundtrack up for streaming. so until you find the .rar file floating around the internet, this will do.
ok, so i’m not here to troll THAT hard and force more hype upon all of your supple minds, but the social network was completely backed by the 98% aggregate on rotten tomatoes, the 97% on metacritic and the rest of the universal acclaim.
as far as cultural impact goes, fincher has created a commentary that easily conceptualizes and captivates this entire generation. but that’s enough hype for now, because you can just take your ass to a theater and see it yourself. since this is primarily a music website after all, i gotta shed a great deal of light on the movie’s soundtrack. trent reznor and producer/composer extraordinaire atticus ross team up for what is one of the best backdrops to a movie i’ve seen in a long time.
the full soundtrack spans a whopping 19 original compositions, and preorders for the compilation range from $5.00 for the entire digital package to $25.00 for the vinyl. not to mention, hardcopies and HD blu-ray audio’s in between. if you needed an incentive to buy, there’s a five song sampler you can download from below the jump too.
so word on the street is j. cole is doing a bunch of music with 9th wonder for the NBA elite soundtrack, and although this is a cut off of said soundtrack, it’s produced by cole and his boy elite. no problem with having new hollywood cole in the middle of the week, though.
j. cole – the plan
well these hit the internet, and they are apparently 100% legit. 6 clips from the tron score/soundtrack ranging everywhere from :43 to 2:58. all of these sound like my head is gonna explode from an excitement overload, too. i’d grab these before this link gets axed, because it most certainly will.
daft punk – six clips from the tron: legacy OST
this is excellent. something a bit different than the normal weworemasks post. hans zimmer and johnny marr of the motherf’n smiths fame (and modest mouse too, if you like that kinda thing) were on hand at the inception release party to perform the score in its entirety. fast forward to the 8 minute mark to watch it. definitely looking forward to seeing this flick sometime soon. nolan + leo and an 88% on rotten tomatoes (as of now, anyway) couldn’t go wrong, amirite?
m83′s anthony gonzalez contributed a couple tracks, “black hole” and “marion’s theme” to the french film l’Autre monde (black heaven) soundtrack. you can stream the ethereally dramatic ” black hole” below.
the l’Autre monde (black heaven) ost is out july 5.
m83 – black hole
speaking of atlanta greatness, another new joint from the legend mr. cee-lo green. this one comes from the twilight soundtrack that roshan (who also happens to be a HUGE twilight stan) posted about here. did i mention roshan LOVES twilight?
cee-lo green – what part of forever.
well, the time has come to take a break from your every day disregard of the twilight franchise and stream the new soundtrack for eclipse. a lot of good shit on here, folks.
my name is wolfie blackheart and i approve these werewolves.
twilight – eclipse [soundtrack]
aw yeah. i haven’t been smart enough to watch freaknik: the musicial, but sunbear gives his stamp of approval, along with the IMDB camp. in any case, t-pain will be dropping the soundtrack with the dvd of freaknik, and this was one of the songs featured on the venture. classic t-pain, excellent song.
t-pain – save one f. one chance
