Various Artists - Girl Walks Home Alone At Night OST
The movie is really awesome in that there's very little dialogue and the story is kind of told through the soundtrack, which is very much like the Black Stallion soundtrack. Its different moods are handled by different sounds and it's not music I'd heard before. The variety is so lovely and it was just such an excellent collection of music that spoke as a character or several characters in the film.

I feel like its eclecticism can be compared to your new album

I do like to be eclectic. I think of songs in terms of trailers for movies, 'cause you get the main points in a movie, but a lot of times the trailer is actually better than the movie. I'm one of those people who has to get to the movies early 'cause I hate missing the trailers.
