A Listener's Guide to the World of Jim Jarmusch

  • Lara C Cory

Jarmusch’s new film The Dead Don’t Die was scored by Sqürl, blending 80s Carpenter-style synth and unsettling Americana; exactly what you’d expect for a Jim Jarmusch zombie film. To celebrate the release we’ve put together a guide to Jarmusch’s musical universe.

Jim Jarmusch has been making strange, often slow-moving films for decades now. Scratch the surface of nearly any Jarmusch flick and you’ll enjoy character depths, judicious dialogue and hauntingly beautiful cinematography. However, what truly unites the director’s work is a love of music, with his soundtracks ranking among some of the best, and most considered, in modern movie history.
