various, soundtrack for Morvern Callar LP, Warp Morvern Callar is the latest from Lynne Ramsay and is due out on 1 Nov. The soundtrack is released on 4 Nov. The story is about a woman from the North of Scotland who abandon's herself at Costa something and then reinvents herself in the sierras. The soundtrack includes Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, Stereolab, Broadcast, Lee Perry, Holger Czukay, and the Velvet Underground: although I'm not sure that Velvets fans will get excited about I'm Sticking with You which is one of their ironic lightweight accoustic numbers. I liked the Boards of Canada and Holgar Czukay tracks best but in the context of the movie this could all be quite different - that's one of the problems with soundtracks. They can appear as odd assortments without context. Aha, and that's a good cue to mention the Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood track. I guess there was something happening in the sierras then.
