Various Artists - I'm Not There Orig. Sdtk
(Cate Blanchett as Bob Dylan)
Download: Sufjan Stevens - "Ring My Bells"
Download: Jeff Tweedy - "Simple Twist Of Fate"
Bob Dylan biopic "I'm Not There" has plenty of cool stuff going for it – Heath Ledger, Christian Bale and Cate Blanchett all play Dylan at different points in his life. And I think we all expected the soundtrack to be pretty sweet.
And sweet it will be: tracks by Sufjan, Calexico with Jim James, Cat Power and Jeff Tweedy are now up on the soundtracks official MySpace. As someone who is both hot and cold on Dylan (he writes come great songs, but some of them go on a solid 2 minutes too long), I am blown away by this. The complete soundtrack has Stephen Malkmus, The Hold Steady, Willie Nelson (w/Calexico), Eddie Vedder, Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Karen O, Iron & Wine and more. That's a whole lot of rock on two discs.
Up top is Blanchett as Dylan. Well, isn't that somethin'!
