Record of the week

The Last Great Wilderness’ (2003) was the first time The Pastels had been commissioned to score a film. The album perfectly captures the film’s mixture of thriller, horror and comedy. Engineered by John McEntire (Tortoise, Stereolab) at Glasgow’s CaVa studio, the album included a performance with Jarvis Cocker on the instant- classic album closer, ‘I Picked A Flower’. The slightly windswept chime of the album fits perfectly with a by then quickly developing Geographic aesthetic.
