I had the time this weekend to go see the hilarious new movie Get Him to the Greek. It is a movie spinoff of “Aldous Snow” the crazy rockstar character that is seen in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It’s created by the same people as Superbad so its one of those must see movies that you have to know is pretty stupid going in, but you will have a good time while watching it.. so if you’re a pretentious bastard GTFO!
Anyways, the character “Aldous Snow” is in a fictional band called “Infant Sorrow”. The move features clips of many original music from this fictional band. When I went home I google’d and found that they actually made a soundtrack with full length versions of all these songs. If you’re a Flight of the Conchords fan or you’ll love this album just as much. The hilarious lyrics are hidden well behind well written melodies and orchestration with great percussion and guitar riffs. Songs like “The Clap” make me feel like I’m listening to a great song from the 80s. This one in particular isn’t as ridiculous as some of the rest. “Bangers, Beans and Mash” I think is hilarious yet is dark lyrical genius. Take a listen and maybe you will agree with me and say this is going to be one of the most under appreciated soundtrack albums this year:
Infant Sorrow- Bangers Bean and Mash
Infant Sorrow- The Clap
“African Child” was described in the movie as the worse song of all time due to its really racially offensive lyrics. However if you put that aside, I love the music and instrumentation.
