Part of our ongoing Cinema Sounds series, Paul Gonter brings us “Stanley Kubrick,” the opening track from Mogwai’s 1999 album EP.
The Artist: Mogwai’s just not that into you
The Influence: the unmistakable Stanley Kubrick
The Result: the happy ending The Shinning never had
Post rock bands are ripe for soundtracks, that’s obvious. It’s probably why Explosions in the Sky formed. Mogwai has done a few of their own, even sharing the bill with Godspeed! You Black Emperor and Sigur Ros on The Fountain soundtrack. Talk about legitimacy: setting the mood for Hugh Jackman’s tears!
EP is available for purchase on iTunes.
