And just like that, the Oscars may become a better musical showcase than the Grammys.
First Oscar Concert Honors Nominated Composers

… After 85 years, Oscar is putting on his very first concert, and there are plans to televise future shows worldwide…
The motion picture academy will present a live Oscar Concert in the days leading up to the 86th annual Academy Awards that celebrates the year’s nominated music. The Feb. 27 concert at UCLA’s Royce Hall will feature all five original scores performed by an 80-piece orchestra conducted by each nominated composer, plus performances of the four original songs up for Oscars this year
…

On the program: Five-time Oscar winner John Williams (who has an astounding 49 nominations) with “The Book Thief”; Arcade Fire’s William Butler and Owen Pallett with “Her”; 12-time Oscar nominee Thomas Newman with “Saving Mr. Banks”; Steven Price with “Gravity” and six-time nominee Alexandre Desplat with “Philomena.”
As for the original songs, Jill Scott is set to sing Pharrell Williams’ “Happy” from “Despicable Me 2.” ”Let It Go” from “Frozen” will be performed by its writers, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez. Performers for U2’s “Ordinary Love” from “Mandela” and Karen O’s “The Moon Song” from “Her” will be announced soon, Fox said.
The nominated songs’ original performers, including Idina Menzel who sings “Let It Go” in “Frozen,” are set to appear on the March 2 Academy Awards.


The only thing missing now is an award that celebrates the placement of EXISTING music into new films.  The “original” music category stipulations are tight, and don’t allow for truly great music to be submitted.  Memorably, to me, is “Lust for Life” in Transporting, “Hurdy Gurdy Man,” in Zodiac, and “Shipping off to Boston” from The Departed, and “Wise Up (It’s not going to stop)” in Magnolia.

New Phoenix video… amazing or fucking amazing — END OF CHOICES!

Work Drugs - West Coast Slide

Work Drugs just released the new Mavericks album, and it’s obviously the perfect time of year for the jams included. Here is the video for “West Coast Slide.” I’d like to note that none of my summers have ever been as fun as the ones depicted in this video.
