Osvaldo Golijov - Tetro (2009)

soundtrack to the criminally underrated 2009 Francis Ford Coppola film Tetro by hot shit Argentinian composer du jour, Osvaldo Golijov. aside from a couple of dense, neo-Romantic (yet still amazing) orchestral suites towards the end, the music is extremely approachable, elegant, tinged with folk elements, and staggeringly beautiful. the recurring themes make initial listens seem like a half-remembered dream, or an acid flashback. track 10 (El Glaciar) may be the most load-blowing 2:19 of music i've heard in the past year.
