New Robyn Hitchcock – “Up To Our Nex”

By Scott Lapatine / October 13, 2008

Everyone’s buzzing about the Anne Hathaway-starring, Jonathan Demme-directed, Rachel Getting Married. It’s better than the chihuahua movie even. On Friday, we listened to Tunde Adebimpe’s Neil Young cover (the TVOTR singer plays the guy marrying Rachel). Also on the soundtrack are two Robyn Hitchcock tunes, one of which was written for the film. It’s a dense rocker punctuated by trumpets and wah wah and kitchen-sink percussion. Thoroughly uplifting, unlike the movie.

Rachel is in limited release now. Oscar noms aren’t ’til January.

    I love Robyn Hitchcock and this song makes me very happy and I’m glad to have heard it here for the first time.

    One small complaint, though: No MP3? Please tell me imbedded Imeem players are not going to take the place of the promotional MP3.

    RH deserves your dollar.

    I’d love to give RH my dollar but I don’t want the whole soundtrack which for me only has a couple of songs I’d like to have. Too bad you can’t buy the songs individually.
