PARK CITY -- This year I'll be reprising my role covering one angle of the Sundance fray, separating wheat and chaffe in scores and soundtracks.
There will be no dearth in compelling new projects this year, particularly when it comes to hip-hop.
But I've already got my eye on a horsey whose casting (Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe) and story may be strange, but its soundtrack looks like perfect sense. "Melt With You" gets a 2011 remix of its namesake song from Modern English, but also another one of theirs too â€“ along with about two dozen, top-shelf classic new wave, modern rock and punk tracks, from the Clash and the Sex Pistols, to X and Dead Kennedys, Talking Heads to Cabaret Voltaire, to Grandmaster Flash and Sundance co-headliners Beastie Boys.

HitFix's Drew McWeeny, in speaking with Pellington publicist Bebe Lerner, was told that the director pulled out all the stops" all of his music video connects, favors, musical collaborators and friends“ to secure a top-notch, big-name final for the soundtrack.
