The soundtrack to Gia Coppola’s new film “Palo Alto,” which is based on James Franco’s shorts stories and stars Franco, Emma Roberts and a stellar cast, caught my eye recently when it became available to stream.
It’s an eclectic mix of electronic/indie music centered around the work of Devonte Hynes (a.k.a. “Blood Orange”) who provides the score. In addition to a couple of Blood Orange songs, Hynes contributes a new song named after the film.
Other featured artists are Mac Demarco, Coconut Records, and Robert Schwartzman.
The movie will be out in limited release on May 9. You can stream the album on spotify now.
