Tor Post: Songs From District 12 – Producer Greg Wells Steps Into the Arena

Published April 27, 2012 by Teresa

Remember when I said there’d be three posts that feature my interview with music producer, Greg Wells, and his latest project, The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond? Well, here’s number two. :) This time, over at Tor.com where, appropriately enough, it’s a more Hunger Games-focused review/interview.

Excerpt:

You’ve probably already seen The Hunger Games a million times by now. Read every magazine piece, watched every YouTube video. Have you listened to the soundtrack yet? Probably.

But if not, you should. The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond stands as one of the great film soundtracks of recent years. It, like T-Bone Burnett’s soundtrack for the Coen Brothers’ film O Brother, Where Art Thou?, as well as every soundtrack for every Quentin Tarantino film ever created, is a narrative in its own right, allowing the listener to know and live in the world of the film long after the screen goes dark. The album boasts talent like Taylor Swift, The Civil Wars, Kid Cudi, The Decemberists, Arcade Fire, and Neko Case, creating a rich tapestry true to the dystopian,  Appalachian core of both the Hunger Games film and the books.

I can’t stop listening to it.
