Jonny Greenwood Revamps Radiohead 'Spooks' For 'Inherent Vice'

(Radio.com) One of the biggest draws of the upcoming oddball ensemble movie Inherent Vice, set in the 1970s and based on the Thomas Pynchon novel of the same name, is the music. Aside from the fact that folk harpist Joanna Newsom is the film's narrator, its soundtrack was composed by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood.

Today brings the first listen to the soundtrack, in the form of a two-and-a-half-minute spacey blues jam featuring narration by Newsom straight out of the script and instrumental work by Supergrass members Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey.

The crew captures the feel of the time in their atmospheric track with softly wailing guitar riffs, sparse percussion and building basslines. It sounds exactly like the kind of record the story's protagonist--stoner-detective Doc Sportello, played by Joaquin Phoenix--would put on. The song was originally revealed in 2006 as a non-album track from Radiohead. Listen here.
