Wretches & Jabberers Soundtrack

I'm always on the hunt for new music, and have fallen in love with many movie soundtracks in my life. Three that immediately come to mind are those from the movies Pumpkin, Buffalo 66, and Frida.

So just the other day, when I was browsing youtube hoping to find some songs from Buffalo 66 sung by Vincent Gallo, I was pleased to find a new song performed by him, from the recently released Wretches & Jabberers soundtrack. It was LOVE at first play. The best part is, all 20 of the original songs from the soundtrack are on youtube for listening. I listened to every single one of them within the last week, and the soundtrack has now made the list as a new favorite. Lovely listening for your Sunday, girls! AND, I've taken all of the work out of clicking on separate links for each track. I made a youtube playlist you'll find below of every song, in order as it appears on the cd.

Some of those names below should give you an idea of how great the music will be. The movie is a documentary about two Autistic men, Tracy Thresher and Larry Bissonnette, who, according to the website, go into the world to "change attitudes about disability and intelligence." It comes out this month, and is now on my list of movies to watch this spring.
