Not something I’d normally post, but I just watched Drive and the soundtrack was on point. It's as much of a storytelling device as the acting in this movie. That could easily be a raw deal, but the good cinematography, adrenaline lit car chase scenes, and seriously stunning shots of LA played right into it and created a cool experience. This song did most of the lifting, but the entire soundtrack is so good:
They played Das Racist's Shorty Said while I was beering out with some Belgian ales at LA's Wurstküche and I realized how potent their music was for mixing good vibes into any setting. Pitchfork might have panned the new album, but I've had it in rotation since it dropped and I’m still feeling that vibe all over.
