Petra Haden: Petra Goes To The Movies

By: Brendan

I love movie music and I love a Capella performances, so this is one of my favorite discoveries of the year. Petra Haden’s vocal performances of movie themes may sound like a novelty but it’s a starkly beautiful album, particularly on lush themes such as “Cinema Paradiso.” (Note: Vic loves her cover of the Psycho main title) Petra is Charlie Haden’s daughter, and a former member of The Decemberists, Tito & Tarantula and That Dog. You can hear Petra’s cover of the Superman theme below…
