Acclaimed indie director Jim Jarmusch says that one of the most important parts of any film is its soundtrack (or “soundtrack record” as he calls it). Perhaps that’s why Jarmusch’s own band, Bad Rabbit, provided several songs for the soundtrack for his new film The Limits of Control as well as putting out a separate EP of music from the film (with a few duplicated tracks from the soundtrack, unfortunately).

With a mixture of  hip psychadelia and international flair, this soundtrack provides the kind of laid back hipster tunes you’d expect from Jarmusch – and the kind that you can easily chill out to – in short it’s a soundtrack that feels completely original while still feeling comfortable enough to play in the background at a social gathering.

The tunes by Bad Rabbit are cool, but I’d recommend the full soundtrack (which includes both “Sea Green Sea” and “Dawn” from the EP, as well as the “Intro” track that the EP is lacking. Though “Dusk” and “Blue Green Sea” are on the EP alone, it’s worth the few extra bucks to get the soundtrack and get a mixture of Boris and Sunn O))) along with Bad Rabbit. This soundtrack is a hipster’s musical paradise.
