Liam Hayes A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III: Music From The Motion Picture on 180g LP + Download Card w/ Bonus Tracks
A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III is Roman Coppola's highly anticipated 2013 feature film coming off the heels of co-writing 2012's Moonrise Kingdom with Wes Anderson. Featuring an all-star cast including Charlie Sheen, Bill Murray, Jason Schwartzman, Patricia Arquette and Aubrey Plaza, A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders.
Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles' life falls apart and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates - Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette) - he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?
A Glimpse Inside The Mind Of Charles Swan III features a score by Chicago native, Liam Hayes, who has made music under the name Plush since the early '90s. Liam was contacted by Coppola after the director became a huge fan. "I just got so absorbed by his music," Coppola recently told GQ. The resulting affinity between the director and musician produced a highly imaginative, atmospheric, cinematic score. Liam Hayes' elevated level of song craft is apparent throughout.
Some tracks feature arrangements containing more than 30 seasoned musicians, while others are beautifully spare piano and vocal pieces. "I haven't played many gigs on a beach with a Hammond organ, you know?" says Hayes about performing the tune, "So Much Music" in the movie. The soundtrack also contains a country western song (from Jason Schwartzman), and a beautiful cover of the Brazilian classic "Aguas de Marco" written by Antonio Carlos Jobim sung by the film's lead actors Katheryn Winnick and Charlie Sheen. 180g vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve plus download card with bonus tracks.
