Amoeba Review

03/31/2014

Actor Oscar Isaac casts a morose spell on his tracks, while producer T. Bone Burnett rounds up a collection that hangs together well, ditching the rose-colored glasses to keep things intriguing as a representation of a hallowed era in folk music yet smooth enough to enjoy on its own accord.

The Coen Brothers continue their strong track record with their films’ soundtracks on the Inside Llewyn Davis OST. The film covers a fictionalized version of the 1960s New York folk scene, and as with their O Brother Where Art Thou? soundtrack, this one’s also produced by T. Bone Burnett and features performances by its stars. Lead star Oscar Isaac has a lovely voice, casting a morose spell on opener “Hang Me, Oh Hang Me.” He proves a great match to Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons (who worked with Burnett on putting together the soundtrack) on “Fare Thee Well (Dink’s Song).” Those curious about how Justin Timberlake fits into the equation should be directed to the picturesque “Five Hundred Miles,” sung with co-stars Carey Mulligan and Stark Stands, on which Timberlake sounds sweet and of the era, eschewing any pop star touches, while Mulligan stands out with Emmylou Harris-esque backup vocals. They’re not all winners—Timberlake, Isaac and Adam Driver’s “Please Mr. Kennedy” is too goofy out of context from the film—but overall, Isaac successfully emerges as a deserved star from the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack, owning most of the songs and holding his own among artists that include Bob Dylan, whose “Farewell” is a gem originally written for The Times They Are A-Changin. (It was released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 in 2010.) While you’re waiting for Inside Llewyn Davis to be released, why not check out how its stars recreate the 1960s folk scene on its soundtrack? You won’t be disappointed.
