“It’s Good To Know Zach Braff Is Thinking Of (The New Pornographers)”

The New Pornographers’ Challengers is a post-Evaluation champ, so we’re always overjoyed when news related to the members of the Canadian power-pop supergroup slides across our desks. In the September issue of Stuff (we usually read it for the pictures, swear), Carl Newman’s interviewed: turns out he has more of a connection to the Garden State than the fact it abuts his Brooklyn digs.


Via Stuff:

It?s funny. We got a call that said Zach Braff really wanted to use a song ?Miracle Drug? in The Last Kiss. It ended up not working, but part of me was thinking, will this be Garden State: Part Two? Then he ended up using the song in The Ex, but it was too little, too late. There?s only one chance for the lightning strike of Garden State. But it?s good to know Zach Braff is thinking of us.

After reading that we realized we forgot who actually was on the soundtrack outside of Iron & Wine, Nick Drake, Coldplay, and the life-changing Shins. As a refresher, the film’s tracklist in all its Grammy-winning, indie yuppie glory:

01 Coldplay – “Don’t Panic”
02 The Shins – “Caring Is Creepy”
03 Zero 7 – “In The Waiting Line”
04 The Shins – “New Slang”
05 Colin Hay – “I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You”
06 Cary Brothers – “Blue Eyes”
07 Remy Zero – “Fair”
08 Nick Drake – “One Of These Things First”
09 Thievery Corporation – “Lebanese Blonde”
10 Simon & Garfunkel – “The Only Living Boy In New York”
11 Iron And Wine – “Such Great Heights”
12 Frou Frou – “Let Go”
13 Bonnie Somerville – “Winding Road”

Wonder if Braff would score the indie romance any differently three years later. Remy Zero?
