Companion CD To The Video Game – Contains Exclusive Tracks Available Nowhere Else.
Stubbs The Zombie: The Soundtrack contains specially commissioned covers of ’50s-era songs heard in the game, performed by Cake, The Dandy Warhols, Death Cab For Cutie, The Flaming Lips, Ben Kweller, Phantom Planet, The Raveonettes and others.
You don’t have to be a gamer to enjoy the soundtrack to Stubbs the Zombie, but you do need a taste for irony, mixed with a moderate helping of kitsch. The concept is simple yet entertaining: hire a handful of very well-known "alternative bands," (The Flaming Lips, Death Cab, The Dandy Warhols) and have them rock to the oldies. Cake's "Strangers in the Night" is the best track hands down--you'll definitely want to spin this at your next cocktails-and-Halo-soiree--followed by the Ravonettes' "My Boyfriend's Back" (which also appears on Pretty in Black). But everyone does a fine job. These are songs that most people know like the back of their hands, so no big surprises--just a few giggles. Pop it into the disc player and enjoy... with or without brains. --Leah Weathersby
