Garden State Blues

Zach Braff is certainly a writer and director who we need to keep our eyes on. His motion picture debut Garden State can be put on the same shelf as Wes Anderson's Rushmore and Bottle Rocket. I'm looking forward to his next project.

Braff's musical picks for this motion picture turn out to be an ideal mix of melancholy, carefree, and sincerity. Featuring new and old (some long dead) artists, this OST brings together a thoughtful mix of styles that all seem to play off each other in a way that makes this a perfect summer spin for your home or car. Some notable artists are: Nick Drake, Iron & Wine, Coldplay, Shins, Zero 7, and Thievery Corporation.
