New Jersey, New Slang

Writer/director/actor Zach Braff explains his indie-rock picks for the Garden State soundtrack in the new Spin:

“New Slang,” the Shins
“That song was on Scrubs — I heard it and was like, ‘This is the greatest song ever.’ I thought it was really romantic for her to pass these big headphones to him. It was like an umbilical cord, like she was plugging him into her world.”

The film opens tonight in NY and LA. You can read Zach’s blog here. (link via Nick/Laura Slash Temp.)
