Spencer Krug on Wes Anderson

Spencer Krug wants to hear from Wes Anderson, and I would love to hear from either of them. Sunset Rubdown‘s lead man, Spencer Krug, mentioned Wes in a recent Pitchfork “Guest List” interview in which the band talks candidly about virtually everything.

Artist I’d Most Like to Collaborate With

SK: I can’t totally decide, but I will say that for a long time now I’ve had this fantasy where Wes Anderson just calls me up, casually introduces himself, and explains that he’s run out of cool 1960s and 70s pop to use for soundtrack material and would really appreciate it if I could try writing some tunes for his upcoming film. Then I’d say that I’m super busy right now but his ideas sound “interesting,” and that we should talk about it over a beer.

Krug happens to be a personal favorite musician of mine, and Sunset Rubdown is my favorite of his many projects (read: Wolf Parade, Swan Lake, et al). Needless to say, I was excited to read Wes’s name in Pitchfork’s sub-head.

  1. Well I’m glad I sent you that now, after finding out you love Sunset Rubdown! I love them too, and Wolf Parade also – actually I’m kind of biased to any band from Montreal (my fave city in the world!) Have you ever heard the Handsome Furs? They’re pretty badass as well.

    In other music-related Wes news, I found a youtube interview with the Silversun Pickups (another one of my fave bands), where the interviewer asked them what filmmaker they would like to write music for, and who do you think they said? Wes, of course!
