Editors’ Notes The song choices in Garden State are gentle, intimate, and charming—perfect for a story about depression morphing into romance. The Shins’ “New Slang” is a reference on the soundtrack and within the movie, where it’s used as a symbol for a certain comforting sadness. This mood finds its origins in selections by Nick Drake and Simon & Garfunkel, and connects them to their contemporary corollaries in Iron & Wine and Remy Zero. Even as the tracklist tilts into atmospheric electronica by Thievery Corporation and Zero 7, the vibe remains brooding and gorgeous.
