When Arling & Cameron say MUSIC FOR IMAGINARY FILMS, they mean it. These tracks seem to be pre-made for soundtrack-readiness, and a wide range of movies as well. "Le Flic et La Fille" is a swingin' 60's French party, while "1999 Spaceclub" is a jazz bumper on the moon (or somewhere thereabouts). "W.E.E.K.E.N.D." and "Spacebeach" are summery celebrations (both with hints of Brazilian samba), complete with guitar and graceful vocal harmonies. Sure, there's plenty of cheeky cheesiness ("Hashi," "Let's Get Higher," "The Only Guy") but it's balanced by the more serious tracks like the smooth "Milano Cool" or the uplifting "New Day." The rhythms tend towards simple patterns, but fit the tracks' mood well -- witness, for example, the two versions of "Zona Sul." "Hermann" is a theremin-induced homage to Bernard Hermann, who composed several soundtracks for Hitchcock (including the famous strings for the "shower scene" in Psycho). Overall, an enormously fun album.
