feeling alil' twee today and going to feed my dream pop craving.
continued proof that there are musically interesting bands coming out of sweden.
the first time i heard the new order-influenced pulling our weight was in sofia coppola's candy coated marie antoinette. save from the film locations, music and costumes, the movie itself was just okay. however, girl knows her music and for that, she gets two thumbs up. i mean, who else would use the strokes and windsor for the derby in a film based in 18th century france? and not to forget the creme de la creme, new order's ceremony used perfectly in the movie and its trailer.
the 2 disc soundtrack is a veritable cornucopia of songs worth listening to, with its mix of 80s new wave, indie and classical works from rameau, scarlatti and vivaldi.
and when i do go see the chateaux in versailles, chantilly and millemont someday, this soundtrack will be what i'll be listening to.
