This Beautiful City Soundtrack

Published July 17, 2008.VariousThis Beautiful City Soundtrack(Universal) This little award-winning Canadian indie film (it won some top awards at the Phoenix and Houston film festivals last year) may not screen in our part of the world, but we should really pay attention to the soundtrack nonetheless---if only for the great (read: better-than-the-original) remix of Buck 65's "Kennedy Killed The Hat" and the two solo Bry Webb tunes. Webb strips it down to bare essentials on "Positive People" and offers an acoustic ode to the city we all love to hate, with "Big Smoke." If Webb's writing for the Constantines didn't already make you realize how great a songwriter he is, then these tracks certainly will. ---Dave Haydencategories: Canadian artist
