Listen: Karen O and the Kids: All is Love (for Where the Wild Things Are Soundtrack)

. Thursday, August 27, 2009

Karen O and The Kids' first musical output "All Is Love", for the WTWTA Sountrack, set to the WTWTA Trailer.

"Having already courted the Pitchfork set (via Karen O and her indie superstar cavalcade), the literary nerds (via McSweeney's Dave Eggars and Maurice Sendak himself) and most obviously, film buffs, Spike Jonze has now set his sights on the fashion pack by enlisting uber-cool NYC retailer Opening Ceremony and jewelry designer Pamela Love to create some WTWTA inspired product.

According to W magazine (via LA Racked) "Opening Ceremony's founders Humberto Leon and Carol Lim designed faux furs based on the monsters in Where the Wild Things Are, while enlisting Pamela Love to create "clawlike jewelry" in honor of the film's October premiere. Jonze told the magazine: "Instead of just putting money in fast food and all that stuff, we want to do [projects] with people we're really excited about...Humberto sent me the designs and I was like, 'Okay, cool.'""

Though I'm all for marketing campaigns that eschew reach for relevance, I'm kinda bummed I won't be able to buy a Where The Wild Things Are lunchbox for work."
