Ugly Casanova – 180 South Soundtrack

Published by at 12:11 pm under Experimental,Folk,MP3's,soundtrack

this is an old picture. add on 8 years.

I am so happy right now. In fact, I don’t think I’ve been this happy for 8 years. As you probably suspected, this is because new material from Isaac Brock’s side project, Ugly Casanova, released today. Ugly Casanova’s 2002 solo release, Sharpen Your Teeth, is still one of my favorite albums, and I’m not even mad that it’s taken him this long to release something new for the project, as I’m still absorbing the genius of that album.

The 9 new tracks were created for 180° South, a documentary that “retraces Yvon Chouinard’s and Doug Tompkins’ epic 1968 journey to Patagonia through the eyes of adventurer Jeff Johnson.” (Currently available on Netflix instant stream). Other contributors to the 180 South soundtrack include Mason Jennings, The Shins’ James Mercer,  Jack Johnson, and Love as Laughter…all great musicians. The soundtrack releases today on Brushfire Records.

I’m definitely going to be listening to the second track, “Here’s to Now,” for a very long time. A few other Ugly Casanova favorites include “Lay Me Down” and the rendition of  “Hotcha Girls” (my favorite track on Sharpen your Teeth).

Brock’s must read interview with Pitchfork answers the question you are like asking right about now.

Pitchfork: What made you decide to bring back your Ugly Casanova project?

IB: Well, the nitty roots of that is that it would have been a problem legally if I’d called it Modest Mouse. I don’t much like things to go by somebody’s name, like the Bob Jones Group Jam Band. I figured, since it was more than writing, it’d just be easier to consider it as another Ugly Casanova project.

Happy Ugly Casanova day!

    Ahh! You helped me solve the mystery. Loved the movie “180 South” and the whole time I’m watching it I’m thinking about how I want to get my hands on the soundtrack. Which I did. Ok, James Mercer is on the album and I know of him from The Shins/Broken Bells. But Ugly Casanova…who is that? And why am I hearing Modest Mouse? Alright…Isaac Brock. You put the name to the voice and I’m a wiser music lover for it. Mahalo!

    Long story long: Came across your site via a search to to find out if Congratulations had put out any new music yet (no, apparently), saw your comments and bands I’d never heard of (I’m very not cool) and was listening through and came across the new Ugly Casanova tracks. Had no idea (again: not cool). Sharpen Your Teeth is an excellent album and it’s great to know there’s new music. Thanks for posting.

    Of all domesticated animals, dogs are the most loyal and loving of all.
    Be patient, however, with dogs that aren’t used to
    wearing boots as such may take some time for them
    to get used to. One of the hottest accessories in dog fashion right
    now is blingy dog collars.
