While their other motion picture soundtrack, First Love, Last Rites, contains more traditionally pop-structured songs, their soundtrack for the film High Art is much more of an authentic movie score. The compositions are mostly ambient, with gentle washes of synthesizers and laid-back hip-hop beats creating airy textures — in other words, a complete departure musically for Shudder to Think. Their goal was to create music that would baffle the listener into figuring out which instrument was playing what, and they've easily succeeded. "Battle Soaked (Amnesian Mix)" is a Prince-sounding funk workout, while "She Might Be Waking Up" is the only track on the soundtrack that contains vocals and lyrics. Two other bands contribute tracks similar in style — "The Gavial" by Reservoir and "That's Fat" by JeepJazz Project, which fit in perfectly with the Shudder material. Highly recommended to fans of ambient and Shudder to Think.
