Congrats to Sound City Soundtrack on the Grammys!

It’s a great day for good soundtracks! Sound City: Real to Reel, which features a track called “Heaven and All” that was written and performed by Robert Levon Been, Dave Grohl, and Peter Hayes, won the 2014 Grammy for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media. Here’s Butch Vig’s award acceptance speech from Loudwire.com:

“Woo! I’ve got to dedicate this to Dave Grohl,” said Vig. “It was really Dave’s vision, enthusiasm and energy that made Sound City come to life. It’s an absolute pleasure working with him everyday. I love you hombre.”

“A big shout to Sam and everyone at Studio 606, our technical crew and the lovely James Brown who made it sound kind of sweet,” added Vig. “Also a shout out to all the incredible musicians we collaborated with on ‘Sound City.’ It was truly a unique and once-in-a-lifetime experience. Sound City! Thank you.”

BRMC score the dark comedy “Life After Beth”

Earlier today, BRMC announced their involvement in creating the musical score for a film called ‘Life After Beth‘ premiering at Sundance Film Festival this week:

“For all you film lovers out there, BRMC have created the musical score to a new dark comedy ‘Life After Beth’. It will be premiering at the Sundance Film Festival this week. Directed by Jeff Baena, the film stars Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, John C. Riley, and Dane DeHann. Unfortunately since this is the first film festival that it is being presented at, there is no trailer as of yet, but we’ll keep you posted.”

Here’s more info and photos on the film from Sundance’s website:

2014, 91 minutes, color, U.S.A., U.S. Dramatic

Zach is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth. When she miraculously comes back to life, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to experience all the things he regretted not doing when she was alive. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite the way he remembered her, and before long, Zach’s world takes a turn for the worse.

Imitating what Dr. Frankenstein did with his monster, writer/director Jeff Baena assembles disparate parts of his film into a new whole and jolts fresh life into it. By fusing elements of a young love story and a zombie movie, he concocts a wickedly funny and shockingly poignant film. With its killer soundtrack and all-star cast, including Aubrey Plaza, whose distinctive delivery has never been used to greater effect, and Dane DeHaan, who perfectly embodies the suffering of a young man with a broken heart and a rotting girlfriend, Life After Beth will leave you dying to see it again. – T.G.
