Death-Cab-For-Cutie-Does-First-Single-For-New-Moon-Soundtrack

What I want to know is how on earth the NEW MOON music people were able to get such an amazing array of indie rock artists for their soundtrack. Sure, the TWILIGHT soundtrack had some good tunes, but this is THE CROW-good.

The album features classic acts, such as Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Muse, as well as up-and-comers like St. Vincent, whose sophomore effort "Actor" is one of best things you'll hear this year. About a month ago, Death Cab's contribution arrived and now more sounds are starting to hit the web. After hearing them, I can't say if the movie is gonna be good, but it's definitely gonna rock! The soundtrack isn't due out until the 20th, but you can check out some of the new songs after the jump.

Thom Yorke - "Hearing Damages"

Grizzly Bear (with Victoria Legrand) - "Slow Life"

Editors - "No Sound but the Wind"

    how did they get such great artist to participate in such a commercial movie? i don't even think the songs will match the movie, like that radiohead song at the end of twilight that was forced in the credits

    This soundtrack seems to be trying pretty hard to get some indie cred, which is cool, these three songs are pretty good. That Death Cab for Cutie song on the other hand…ugh.
