Joyride [1997]

The best part of 1997's awful teen murder flick Joyride was the soundtrack, pieced together by 4AD's Ivo Watts-Russell. As an assemblage of the label's roster, it flows well, to the point of serving the same purpose as a DJ mix CD. The majority of this favors the dreamier side of the label's output, interrupted only by the discordance of Scheer's "Cannon." Lush fans might also take note, as the disc leads off with an instrumental version of Split's "Light From a Dead Star." This Mortal Coil, Watts-Russell's first studio project, makes three appearances, including its virtual lifting of Can's "Halleluwah" for "Something Borrowed." From the reverb-drenched twang of Tarnation's "Game of Broken Hearts" to Colourbox's dubbed-up "Shoot Out," Joyride displays the unrealized diversity of 4AD. Pale Saints fans should approach the movie with caution -- witnessing the manner in which "A Thousand Stars Burst Open" is used will surely trigger the gag reflex.
