Free Download: Music from Shelter


Produced by Here! Films, the movie Shelter tells the story of surfer Zach who gets by as a short-order cook in a blue collar area of Orange County but dreams of making it big as a graffiti artist. When the relationship with his girlfriend is fading, he meets writer Brad Rowe. Together, they bond over their creative instincts and inspirations, and end up falling in love. Check out the the trailer of the movie here.

The indie flick has received kudos from both critics and film fans all around the world. I think mostly because it deals with universal themes and emotions that most people can relate too. Plus, the film is filled with pretty people and pretty scenes. The whole look and feel of Shelter reminds me of MTV's Laguna Beach and The Hills.

I caught up with Brian Goldman, Shelter's musical director in Los Angeles, to talk about how he went about selecting music for the movie's soundtrack. "When I found out we were making a surf film, I felt that there were 3 ways to go with the music," Goldman explains. "The first being 'skate-punk' type music, such as Blink 182, the second being classic surf rock ala Jan and Dean with jangly guitars and the third being a Jack Johnson type of acoustic vibe. We decided that the third option would be best because at its essence Shelter is a love story, not necessarily a surf flick and the third type of music seemed to naturally vibe with the story of the film."

Goldman considers "More Than This" by Shane Mack his personal favorite in the movie. "I was lucky enough to be in the studio with Shane when we were recording this song which was recorded specifically for the movie," he shares. " When I saw where the song was placed in the film, I thought to myself “if people don’t cry during this scene, there’s something wrong with them." (Click here to download the soundtrack for Shelter in Amazon.com's MP3 Store.)

the songs might be good but, the movie is not even lifetime movie network worth.

I adored the movie and the music is integrated perfectly. The performances in the film are very real, even if they are from pretty people.

i loved this movie. it was humble and honest and it spoke of things anyone can relate to, no matter their preference. oh and the soundtrack was one of the best i ever came across.it complemented the movie perfectly and set the tone in most of the crucial scenes.

The first 8 seconds of "Time to Time" sound like the first 8 sec. of "Awful" by Hole.
