‘White Bird In A Blizzard’ Claims A Spot In ‘Best Soundtrack Moments Of October’ Roundup | Stereogum

Stereogum has named director Gregg Araki’s White Bird In A Blizzard in its roundup of Best Soundtrack Moments of October, planted firmly in the #2 slot.

Well, this is another one of those ’80s-set shoe-ins where there’s just no way I was going to be able to help myself. The score to White Bird In A Blizzard was handled by Robin Guthrie, the guitarist of Cocteau Twins, AKA the man responsible for some of the most ethereal and beautiful guitar work out there. The opening credits are set to Cocteau Twins’ “Sea, Swallow Me,” and through the various dream sequences and flashbacks, there’s always Guthrie’s guitar, reliably doing what it’s always been so effective at: putting all those strange and ineffable elements of human experience and memory into an actual sound. -Read the full story at Stereogum.

Starring Shailene Woodley, Eva Green, Shiloh Fernandez and Christopher Meloni, White Bird In A Blizzard takes place in the ’80s and early part of the ’90s, featuring a period-correct soundtrack.  Lakeshore Records released two soundtracks: White Bird In A Blizzard Music By Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd, and White Bird In A Blizzard – Songs From The Film, featuring popular hits from the ’80s and ’90s.  Preview the albums below!

Featuring, of course, Cocteau Twins, along with New Order, Depeche Mode, Pet Shop Boys, and Tears For Fears, the song choices mark out the very specific sound Araki uses to tell his tale. The inclusion of The Jesus And Mary Chain gives things a bit of an edge, while selections by Everything But The Girl brings the music toward the ’90s, and Ulrich Schnauss pulls the soundtrack into the new millennium. It’s clearly a soundtrack selected and programmed with care, and one that’s pretty much a ready-to-go mixtape. –Indiewire
