Mysterious Skin: Music From the Film

* Robin Guthrie and Harold Budd * Commotion

Film scores are designed to underscore onscreen action, not to pull focus. But sometimes film music comes along that makes perfect narrative sense in a movie theater and perfect musical sense--a score with its own individual identity. This is one of them. Cocteau Twins alumnus Robin Guthrie and his collaborator, ambient vet Harold Budd, have created a melancholy, dreamlike electronic-acoustic landscape for the traumatized children of Gregg Araki's haunting new film, Mysterious Skin. It drifts and cascades gently around its unspoken subject matter, creating a soothing balm for the story's troubled souls.
