Garden State (2004)

 


Garden State
Composer: Various Artists
A mixtape of songs that meant something to Zach Braff at the time, Garden State’s soundtrack is a compilation of the introspective and the wistful, but remains carefully upbeat. One Of These Things First is at the chirpier end of the Nick Drake spectrum, and it sits surprisingly well alongside the oomph of The Only Living Boy In New York and more recent navel-gazers like Coldplay. Imogen Heap is aboard with her old ‘band’ Frou Frou, and special mention goes to Iron And Wine’s drowsy version of Such Great Heights (originally by fellow Sub-Poppers The Postal Service). The Shins, reflecting the fact that they’re actually recommended by a character in the film, appear twice. Hope they bought Braff something nice to say thanks.
