Local Heroes O.S.T., out on 11 January 2013, like the movie

Judging from the trailer and other film snippets, this will be a movie with lots of dramatic scenes. Tuning a guitar or exiting the Chelsea has never before been such an act of excessive desperation and exaggeration! Questions to the movie I have from watching just the snippets include, Has anyone ever seen an actual wannabe rockstar wear eyeliner?, and, Who still wants a deal with a major label these days?

But a movie is not a documentary, and this post is about the soundtrack, so: It contains twelve songs by fictional (Yoko Love) and actual (Gudrun von Laxenburg, Mother’s Cake, Zuckerkinder) local bands. It is also another project of tausendsassa Hans Wagner (Neuschnee, Das trojanische Pferd, Hans im Glück). Wagner, the “music guide” of Local Heroes lent his voice to the main actor’s band Yoko Love, and if it wasn’t for the English lyrics you could almost think it’s new Neuschnee material.
