This week we learned that Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring soundtrack would feature a collaborative effort from artists like Kanye West, Frank Ocean, M.I.A., Azelia Banks, Sleigh Bells, and 2 Chainz… In other words, it was quite possibly the best thing that happened to us all year.
Where The Great Gatsby seemed to package a mainstream, suit and tied-wearing feel, Bling Ring’s music aims at a different target audience entirely: hipsters.
Daniel Lopatin of Oneothrix Point Never scored the film and is featured on the album’s fifth track, “Ouroboros.”
Because it’s so epic, we decided put the soundtrack together for you here. So, now you don’t have to wait until mid-June when the official version arrives. Whip out the thift shop sunglasses and ironic t-shirts and enjoy!
