Craig Wedren did the ‘Dog Days’ original soundtrack (hear a song)
The new dramedy Dog Days (which "follows a group of interconnected people in Los Angeles who are brought together by their lovable canine counterparts") hits theaters next week, and this Friday (8/3), Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack which features original music by Shudder To Think frontman Craig Wedren (who also did the music for Wet Hot American Summer) and film composer Matt Novack (who Craig worked with on Netflix's reboot of Wet Hot American Summer). Some songs also feature Craig's Pink Ape ensemble and Hamilton's Jasmine Cephas Jones. Ahead of the release, we're premiering Craig Wedren & Pink Ape's "When We Were Older," which is a nice dose of string and harmonica laden indie folk, which we're told "[augments] the whimsical mood of the movie." It's got a little of a Paul Simon vibe, and it's very worth hearing. Check it out, along with the trailer for the film, below.
Dog Days was directed by Ken Marino, and it stars Eva Longoria, Nina Dobrev, Vanessa Hudgens, Lauren Lapkus, Thomas Lennon, Adam Pally, Ryan Hansen, Tone Bell, Jon Bass, Finn Wolfhard, Tig Notaro, and more.
