    New Silversun Pickups track? LOVE.

  • Tiff in the OK

    can’t believe they didn’t include the cover of Enjoy the Silence that Damon and Vicky were dancing too! I was looking forward to that being on here!

    It seriously makes my heart jump a little whenever I hear a Gorillaz tune being played anywhere other than in my CD player. They need to be used for more soundtracks.

  • sarajohnson

    Real excited for the Gorillaz and Sky Ferrerira SONGS

  • Nicole

    No Matt Nathenson that sucks! I love the scene where his song comes on.

    @Heather: It’s a great track, but it’s not new – Currency of Love was a B-Side that was released limitedly from Swoon. But any soundtrack that has the Smashing Pumpkins and Silversun Pickups is probably a decent soundtrack – regardless of how crappy the show is.
