RS Magazine Review: New Moon OST

b7a6322d82e4

Rolling Stone Magazine has a pretty neat review of the NM OST. First time I ever agree completely:

 

The genius of the Twilight saga is the way it celebrates the passion of the all-American fang hag, with Robert Pattinson as the perfect plasma-slurping pinup boy: He’s hot, he’s sexy, and he’s undead. So New Moon is a movie soundtrack, but it’s also a concept album about the bond between teenage girls and their imaginary bloodsucker boyfriends.

First look at “Slow Life” from the NM Soundtrack!

This comes, once again, thanks to the Pitchforks website

We have yet to hear a studio version of “Slow Life”, Grizzly Bear’s duet with Beach House singer Victoria Legrand that will appear on, of all things, the Twilight: New Moon Soundtrack. But fortuitously enough, Grizzly Bear and Beach House are on tour together right now, and they’ve worked the song into their set list. Last night, both bands played at the Blue Note in Columbia, Missouri, and reader Jeneen Garchow sent along footage of Grizzly Bear and Legrand playing the entire song.
From the sounds of things, “Slow Life” is exactly what you’d want from a Grizzly Bear/Beach House combo: a luminous, ethereal slow jam with Legrand and Ed Droste’s voices delicately pushing up against each other. Also of note: That crowd sounds amped.

Robert Pattinson in Joy Magazine – Music for Eclipse?!

normal_joyrob_2

Speaking of passion and music, we know you write songs. What can you share about it?
I’m trying to write some songs for the next movie. I don’t know if it will be possible because of my schedule, but I want to do it. Music is the other side of me, it’s one of the things that complete me and I wouldn’t want to leave it aside for anything in the world. I have the intention of evolving in that aspect. It’s something I want to develope just as much as acting. I want to have a balance between those two things.

What other artistic endeavours are you interested in?
I always wanted to be a pianist and live in the south of France (laughs). But I’ve learned that it’s not important how you do things, but the final outcome. In life you always end up doing what you like. And nothing completes you more than that.

Do you have a spiritual side?
I believe in Karma. I believe it exists and whatever you do in your everyday life makes the eprson that you are. What you give in life comes back to you. I’m convinced of that, so I’m sure that everyday you have to be a good person and treat everyone with respect. We’re all connected.

We know you can’t say much about New Moon, but don’t leave before you tell us, did you have to go to some place dark to play this vampire again?
Yes, the truth is that the way I wanted to play Edward was less powerful. He’s a character that can’t change his condition, he didn’t choose his fate. He was unconcious when Carlisle turned him into a vampire. When he woke up, three days later, he realized that in oder to survive he would have to kill people. Imagine what would you feel like if you knew you would never grow old and that you would live forever. And what’s worse, you didn’t look for it. You become a sort of Superman without even wanting to be that, you were just a 17 year old kid. You must feel a huge impotence and frustration. Instead of believeing you’re hero, you’re a person who can’t find himself and doesn’t know who he is. Understanding that has been fundamental in understanding Edward. That very human side of him is what I love about him and I feel like I can relate to that. There’s something we all find hard to change and face about ourselves.                                                        Read full translation at Twilight Poison
