Expressway To Yr. Films

This vibraphone belongs to John Vanderslice

Hylozoists don’t score films, but they should. Their debut, La Fin Du Monde, is a fluttering jumble of Jon Brion I Heart Huckabees flourishes and rhythmic Morricone-isms, horn squelches and woozy vibraphones. The mostly instrumental album is kind of a weird fit for the otherwise pop-oriented Boompa Records (you shold check out the Salteens), but if we can’t hear this at the movies, scenic drives down Pacific Coast Highway will have to suffice.

Hylozoists – “The Fifty Minute Hour”: mp3
Hylozoists – “Elementary Particles”: mp3

bonus: Salteens – “You Stood Out From The Crowd”: mp3
