YA love and adventure come to the big screen this summer in “Paper Towns,” and paired up with it is a soundtrack that appropriately enough features a slew of hot bands of the moment. So get your headphones ready, because this is a pretty solid mix of tunes.
Spanning sixteen tracks, you can’t throw a rock without hitting a band that’s either critic approved, festival ready, boasts a huge following, or all three. Sister act HAIM, collegiate artistes Vampire Weekend, riff heavy The War On The Drugs, scrappy The Mountain Goats and dance floor ready Santigold are among the highlights. And even the film’s star Nat Wolff contributes “Look Outside” alongside Alex Wolff.
