Needle & Lens: Pop Goes To Movies From Rock 'N' Roll To Synthwave

$19.95
Author
Patrin, Nate

Tracking the link between film and song through the past fifty years, Nate Patrin reveals the power of music used in movies to move the needle in popular culture. As he surveys the scene—musical and cinematic—across the decades, expanding into the deeper origins, wider connections, and echoed histories that come into play, The Needle and the Lens offers a new way of seeing, and hearing, these iconic soundtrack moments.

Music writing and film writing are seldom as accessible and as rigorous as they are in Nate Patrin’s The Needle and the Lens—never mind in the same package and carrying the same weight. As he persuasively argues from first example to last, cinema after rock has often used existing recordings to ends that transform both, in terms cinematic and real-world alike. This sharp, humane book’s gift is in never losing sight, or focus, of either.
