For some reason, the first time I watched the film it didn’t occur to me how good the soundtrack was and how good indie 90’s soundtracks are in general. Someone else on the interenet shares my enthusiam and compiled an 8tracks playlist of every song in the film. Definitely check that out.
As you can hear the whole thing is excellent but two songs stand out for me. One is "Glass Vase Cello Case by Tattle Tale and the other is "Chick Habit" by April March which was also featured in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof.
I wanted to know more about April March so I did a Spotify deep dive and holy shit she’s my new hero! Her real name is Elinor Blake and in addition to crafting perfect surf rock and haunting acoustic folk (often sung in French) she is also a cartoon animator. You might have seen her work on Madonna’s Who’s That Girl film and accompanying video and as the principle animator on “Ren & Stimpy.”
April March, I am currently obsessed.
SOMEBODY takes our endless hunger for communication, technology, avatars and outsourcing, and blends it into what seems to be a surreal near-future — but it’s not. It’s right now.
