XHM #6 - "With only our cunning to protect us" (2010 February 22)

7:32am - 9:00am

Alexandre Desplat's score to The Fantastic Mr. Fox is the fourth of our Oscar nominees profiled. Otherwise, eighties post-punk-funk, dream pop and a mild case of Olympics irony revels. You weren't expecting cherry and magnolia blossoms, were you, o Olympic visitors. Don't worry; the rains are about to return, washing our anachronistic winter away.
