The Wind and the Wave is one of my favorite bands and they just came out with their debut album “From the Wreckage”. I’m really excited to hear more stuff from these guys. I would check em out on Spotify because they have commentary about each song which is really cool
Song Premiere: Coldplay and Cat Power collaboration for Wish I Was Here
Zach Braff, the creator of the film Wish I Was Here, gave an early version of the film to Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Braff told NPR via email that Martin got the band together to work on the song. “Chris had the idea that it would be sung by a woman. I thought that was a genius idea because one of the things the film is about, is a strong woman (Kate Hudson’s character) becoming the matriarch of her family. When Chris and I were talking, we both kind of simultaneously said, ‘Cat Power.’ I reached out to Chan Marshall (a.k.a. Cat Power) and she and I met and really clicked. I set her up to watch the film in her apartment. The whole time she was watching she kept texting me all the different parts she was loving. She said yes the instant it was over.”
Written for the soundtrack of Zach Braff’s new movie Wish I Was Here. Calling it his “in-spirit” sequel to Garden State leaves some big shoes to fill for its release next month. From the looks of it, though, the soundtrack is going to be fantastic. Cat Power, Bon Iver? 00’s music comeback coming on strong.
