Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

So excited about Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist , which opens here on October 3rd.  I adore Michael Cera.  He plays Nick, who isn't gay, but plays in a queercore band.  Norah is played by Kat Dennings, who was also in 40 Year Old Virgin .  She and Nick are high school seniors and they end up running around Manattan, trying to get over their ex's and looking for a legendary band's secret show.  Of course, Nick and Norah nurse the sexual tension throughout the whole adventure, which just happens to be accompanied by a great soundtrack.  The line-up was just announced by Atlantic Records... check it out:

1.  Chris Bell – “Speed Of Sound”
2.  Devendra Banhart – “Lover”
3.  Bishop Allen – “Middle Management”
4.  Vampire Weekend - Ottoman”
5.  The Dead 60s – “Riot Radio”
6.  Takka Takka – “Fever”
7.  The Submarines – “Xavia”
8.  We Are Scientists – “After Hours”
9.  Band Of Horses – “Our Swords”
10.  Army Navy – “Silvery Sleds”
11.  Richard Hawley – “Baby You're My Light”
12.  Shout Out Louds – “Very Loud”
13.  Paul Tiernan – “How To Say Goodbye”
14.  The Real Tuesday Weld – “Last Words”
15.  Mark Mothersbaugh – “Nick & Norah’s Theme”

The album comes out on September 23rd.  You can pre-order next Tuesday, August 26th on the Atlantic Records website and get a free t-shirt (you have to be one of the first 200).  You can also get the album there in limited edition vinyl.
