Lonesome Subway - Mark Oliver Everett (2002)
In honor of Mr. E’s band EELS’ show tonight at First Avenue, here’s a track from his sensitive, heart-wrenching score to the bore-fest of a film that is Levity.
Levity is one of those films where the soundtrack album far outshines the film itself, that while having a pretty okay cast in the form of Billy Bob Thorton, Holly Hunter and Morgan Freeman, seems to play to all of their worst sensibilities.
But this ‘Blr isn’t about films and such, so I will digress. Point is, listen to this track, find this album if you like it and COME SEE THE SHOW tonight if you find yourself in Minneapolis with nothing else to do.
I’ll be up near the front wearing this t-shirt. Come say “hi”.
