Soundtrack of a Country

by A. C. Newman

The documentary film Souvenir of Canada is based on Douglas Coupland’s books of the same name and with the theatrical release of the documentary an EP of music composed for the film has also been released. It’s a neat collection of songs that worked perfectly in the film and somehow manage to capture the same sense of nostagia and melancholy for the idea of a country that is explored in the film. Simple and evocative, just as a soundtrack should be.
