Album Review

Composer David Robbins has come up with an offbeat score for director Mike Cahill's offbeat comedy King of California, about a released mental patient (Michael Douglas) digging for Spanish gold under a suburban Costco store with the help of his teenage daughter (Evan Rachel Wood). For Robbins, the chief means of finding a musical equivalent of the goings-on lies in instrumentation. "Quite often when I start a new project," he writes in his liner notes, "I find that I gravitate toward a particular instrument that helps to inspire me and hopefully lends itself to the style I'm after." In this case, that instrument was the ukulele, that humble, child's version of a guitar, and Robbins has also made extensive use of the banjo, as well as the musical saw, to create a set of weird, folky cues. There are also some changes of pace mixed in, including a song by Jolie Holland, some mariachi horns, an old track by Yma Sumac, and the a cappella "Zari Ritual Lamentation" by the Lileh Choir of Dmanisi. The result is as entertaining as it is odd.

King of California



each insturment is given its own moment and personality. simply sophisticated!

King of California

By far one of the best soundtracks I have heard in years. Almost all instrumental, yet those instruments reflect the characters of the movie in a surreal, moving way. Nothing short of brilliant!
