We Bought A Zoo

The soundtrack for We Bought A Zoo features music by Sigur Rós front man and leading light, Jon Thor Birgisson, aka Jonsi. Composed at the personal request of director - and huge Sigur Rós aficionado - Cameron Crowe, the soundtrack includes original music composed by Jonsi, which plays an integral part to the film's heartfelt emotional landscape. "[Jonsi] arrived from Iceland with a toy sampler keyboard and a headful of ideas," says Cameron. "Within a week, [he] had composed a series of themes that would reflect everything we'd hoped for. In his music were all the highs and lows and passionate in-betweens of the film itself. The instinct that made the movie come full circle." Written and recorded in four months, the soundtrack to We Bought A Zoo comprises more than half-an-hour of brand new music from Jonsi, including two full songs and nine achingly beautiful themes, plus songs from Jonsi's acclaimed solo album, “Go,” as well as one of Sigur Rós' most memorable songs, “Hoppipolla.” We Bought A Zoo is destined for Soundtrack glory... You need this.
Aim & Ignite

Fun. is what happens when three extraordinarily talented musicians come together to create something altogether new and wonderful. Nate Ruess, late of The Format, has teamed up with ex-Anathallo multi-instrumentalist Andrew Dost and Steel Train's Jack Antonoff, resulting in their ingenious debut, Aim And Ignite. The trio melds a stunning array of diverse inspirations - spanning Broadway to The Beach Boys, Nilsson Shmilsson to Pinkerton - into an irresistible collection of freewheeling Pop songcraft. Fun. have crafted something special indeed, a contemporary rethinking of classic '70s pop, where ornate arrangements and inspired orchestrations meet present-day Rock 'n' Roll.

The Coalition of Independent Music Stores (CIMS) is a group of some of the best independent music stores in America. CIMS was founded in 1995; its current membership is made up of 29 accounts that handle 47 stores in 21 states. Many of the accounts have been recognized by the music industry and their local communities for their outstanding dedication to customer service and developing artist support.

Each member is bound by its shared love of music, a reputation for great selection and customer service in its community, yet each CIMS account is as unique as the market it represents. Most importantly, CIMS member stores continually seek to challenge the jaded, color-by-numbers advertising and marketing of other retailers.
