Lost In Translation (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)
There's a hazy dream-pop sheen that coats the soundtrack to Sofia Coppola's cinematic musing on alienation in a crowd. My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields provides several meditative washes of guitar noise, while his band's scuzzy-yet-shimmering "Sometimes" perfectly captures the flick’s lonely and displaced vibe. Ambient electronic support comes from Air's gently melancholic "Alone in Kyoto" and the celestial calm of Squarepusher's "Tommib." French rockers Phoenix, led by Coppola's future husband, Thomas Mars, provide the wistful indie-pop gem "Too Young."
