Alt-J Share New Song "Buffalo" From Silver Linings Playbook Soundtrack


Canvasback Music is excited to share UK-based alt-J's brand new song "Buffalo" featuring Mountain Man from the original motion picture soundtrack of Silver Linings Playbook, which won the People's Choice Award when it premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.  The movie Silver Linings Playbook is based on the bestselling novel of the same name by Matthew Quick and was directed by David O. Russell (The Fighter).  His direction of Silver Linings Playbook has been especially praised for the outstanding performances it elicited from the leading actors, Bradley Cooper (Hangover, Limitless) and Jennifer Lawrence (The Hunger Games, X-Men: First Class).  The film also features a strong supporting cast, including Robert de Niro.  The soundtrack also includes new songs from Jessie J and Alabama Shakes.  The album will be released via Sony Masterworks on November 19 (pre-order here) and the film will be in theaters on November 21.

alt-J's new track featuring Mountain Man, which premiered yesterday on Entertainment Weekly, gives listeners a new side to the recent Mercury Prize-awarded band.  Stripping away some of the instrumental complexities that we've heard on the band's album, "Buffalo" allows guitars and drums to lead most of the way while still focusing heavily on the use of voice as a primary instrument.  The steady rise and fall of the music comes like waves and builds, almost eerily, to a beautiful and simple end.
