EDITORS’ NOTES

Wes Anderson's films are special for numerous reasons, one of them being the exquisite range of classic songs that define their memorable scenes. Gems by The Kinks or Love or Creation coloring a cinematic moment of soul-crushing or utter befuddlement or childlike passion can make any serious rock lover’s heart skip a beat. So imagine those songs covered by artists ranging from Matt Pond to Mike Watt, Kristin Hersh to Telekinesis. These artists bring a entire new elements to the originals, much as their film appearances did. Newer artists having the chutzpah to tackle John Lennon (The Ghost in You) or The Zombies (PHOX) yield awesome surprises: The Solvents’ string-laden cover of The Kinks' “Nothing in This World” is just short of magic, and Trespassers William’s delicate version of Nico’s “Fairest of the Seasons” beguiles. Lovers of Wes Anderson, lovers of rock trailblazers, lovers of all kinds: take joy in I Saved Latin! (What Did You Ever Do?). (The title and rhetorical question are from Rushmore.)

LOVE IT!!!

Lost in Minnesota,

I rarely purchase tributes but this one looked so deliciously unique I just couldn't help myself. I'm very glad I did. It's absolutely wonderful. I've listened three times now and it just keeps getting better. The songs evoke some of my favorite cinematic moments from Wes Anderson's films and I can't help but smile. It's truly a gem!

Listen, love, buy.

Feeling Fine in Austin,

I learned about this fantastic album from my favorite pop culture hipster, Whitney Matheson, who writes for USA Today. Here's what Whitney has to say about 'I Saved Latin'... "I've been listening to and loving this record all day, particularly Hatfield's take on Smith's Needle in the Hay and Matt Pond's version of Nico's These Days, both of which sound a little more hopeful than the originals. Put it in your ears, then re-watch your fave Anderson flick tonight to complete the mood."
