Lakeshore Records has a tremendous catalog of soundtracks and artists albums, but have you heard them all? We dedicate this week to our first selection: Brick, scored by China Kent and Nathan Johnson. This film stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Lukas Haas and Emilie de Ravin in a stylistic Noir thriller centered around a High School murder mystery (watch Brick on YouTube). Just listen to the dialogue!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays Brendan, an outcast who seeks to solve the mystery behind the murder of his ex-girlfriend, who left him cryptic clues before her demise. The soundtrack takes you through the decades via a retro track (thanks to Bunny Berigan), a track by The Velvet Underground, and classically high-pitched and leading instrumentals which only heighten any fears you may be accumulating during key moments of the film.
What do you think of the soundtrack? Let us know in the comments!
