Orange County [2 CD]

As the title implies, this film about an overachiever (Colin Hanks) and his slacker brother (Jack Black) and their attempts to get the studious sib into Stanford takes place in southern California. Although Black's Tenacious D fails to appear on the soundtrack, the mix of So-Cal skate-punk icons and MTV2 stalwarts featured is sure to please fans of the D. Among the biggies whipping up new material for this outing are Offspring (a rowdy stomper, "Defy You"), Foo Fighters (an infectious punk-pop "The One") and Pete Yorn (the melancholy "Lose You"). Otherwise, there are plenty of resurrected nuggets, ranging from Cake's quirky "Shadow Stabbing," an incendiary version of Social Distortion's anthemic "Story of My Life" and Lit's catchy "Everything's Cool." The ultimate nod to the Left Coast comes via a pair of Brian Wilson solo numbers -- the lush "Love and Mercy" and equally harmony-packed "Lay Down Burden" -- along with Phantom Planet's mid-tempo power-pop masterpiece "California." A bonus EP included with first pressings of this collection, featuring punk/hip-hop offerings by Zebrahead, Ill Kidd, the Ataris, and Riddlin' Kids, is the cherry atop this alt-rock-packed sundae of riffs and rants.

Remember how oranges used to have lots of sweet stuff but also those annoying seeds you had to avoid? So it is with many CDs. But the Orange County soundtrack manages to be pretty near seedless. I especially like the Foo Fighters tune, the Pete Yorn number, and my fave - Cake's ''Shadow Stabbing.'' Yet another well-crafted song from the group's latest, ''Comfort Eagle.'' (You've probably seen their very funny video for ''Short Skirt Long Jacket.'') Anyway, whether or not you see Orange County the movie, this is a nifty collection from some of today's more creative bands, and the bonus disk makes it a real value.
