Howling frontwoman Karen O leads an all-star indie rock line-up including Deerhunter singer Bradford Cox, The Bird and the Bee’s Greg Kurstin, a pair of Raconteurs and her fellow Yeah Yeah Yeahs in this jubilant soundtrack to her ex-boyfriend Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.
With the help of an actual children’s choir, this soundtrack will stick in the minds of kids until they’re way past adulthood. And in term will bring tears to those who already have past those years. Warm, earthy, folky and innocent, this’ll leave a dent in your otherwise solid heart. Simply timeless.
Listen to: ‘All is Love’
