New Music Soundtracks

New Sounds tackles film music for this program. Listen for excerpts from Angelo Badalamenti's “Twin Peaks,” and Carter Burwell's score from the movie, "Adaptation," among others. Plus, hear music by David Byrne - “Lead Us Not into Temptation” – a dark and lovely score for the film "Young Adam." The film is set along the canals of industrial Scotland and Byrne's score is somewhat noirish to match the mood of this picture. Guest contributing musicians on Byrne's project included members of Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai, Snow Patrol, The Reindeer Section, and others.
