Alexi Murdoch’s mellow acoustics thrive throughout this fantastic movie directed by Sam Mendes (American Beauty). The main characters Burt (John Krasinski) and Verona (Maya Rudolph) embark on a wandering, life adventure. The plot is thoughtful and real which goes hand in hand with Alexi’s soulful sound. A great movie with great music – go enjoy!
The Away We Go soundtrack is essentially a resurgence of Alexi Murdoch’s 2006 album: Thoughts and Consequence (plus a few new tracks to boot).
Alexi Murdoch is best known for his break out song, Orange Sky, featured in a number of TV Shows, movies, and commercials.
Quirky sound by Coconut Records highlights how direct communication is often underestimated in this smoochy Dentyne commercial.
Coconut Records is a solo artist based in Los Angeles which is none other than Jason Schwartzman with contributions from Zooey Deschanel. He has been moonlighting as an indie musician while not acting/writing films like The Darjeeling Limited or Rushmore. Jason also used to be the drummer for the band, Phantom Planet.
This instrumental ballad is mesmerizing. Minimal and fluid, Fly, is a great fit for an ad hyping the unknown. And Kobe Bryant is the perfect subject. The NBA found some amazing music this year: Fly by Ludovico Einaudi.
Ludovico Einaudi is originally from Turin, Italy. As a classical composer and pianist he has produced ten classical (mainly piano) albums since 1996. Interesting fact: his grandfather, Luigi, was the President of the Italian Republic.
An aquatic adventure to the tune of Tuesday Afternoon by the Moody Blues.
The Moody Blues, a band from Birmingham, England, was founded by Michael Pinder and Ray Thomas in 1964. The band lives on despite numerous member changes over the years. Amazingly, they are still touring.
Hamsters can roll in style too. Funny commercial from Kia highlights what lemmings we can be. The Kia Soul enters the scene with a stand out track, Fort Knox by Goldfish.
Based out of beautiful Cape Town, South Africa – Dominic Peters and David Poole are the core members of the electronica-dance group. They started as collegiate DJ’s and have since moved up the ranks with songs like Fort Knox – their new music from Caught in the Loop is just as energizing.
Absurd reality dominates this commercial while the song, Moving On, offers an energizing beat.
Myrtle Street Connection is an indie pop-folk band based in New South Wales, Australia. The core members are Elliot Wheeler and Emma Hoy, but they collaborate with various other artists. As is the case with Moving On where Andy Calvert (singer from Wifey) does the vocals.
