"Edy" soundtrack is Nils Petter Molvaer's seventh album and in some sense it's a standalone work.Widely known by his aerial atmospheric soundscapes full of Nordic ethos and (especially on later albums)electronic rhythms, on "Edy" Molvaer sounds different.

From very first sounds nervous atmosphere and tension flows around you. I haven's seen the movie, but from soundtrack it doesn't look like "National Geographic" series (and to be honest some Molvaer's albums sound as good soundtrack to "Traveller Guide").Musicians team contains more or less regular Nils collaborators including interesting guitarist Eivind Aarset.But music all album long differs from his other works - there are not many traces of relaxed airy atmosphere,so characteristic for Nordic nu jazz. In fact - not at all.

All music here are full of blood and flesh and nerves. It's not a flamenco-based passionable soundtrack to Spanish movie for sure, but Molvaer's music never before sounded so full-bodied,even heavyweight in moments. All compositions are different and change one another by some internal logic,this album is one of rare (for soundtrack albums) cases when you don't need to see video-line to enjoy the music. Film director Guérin-Tillié said "The three main pillars of 'Edy' are the two main actors and NPM's music, which plays a central role in the motion picture."

I expect music on this album is seriously influenced by film requirements and it's different from what you hear on Molvaer's "regular" albums. Album closes with the only vocal song - Marion Cotillard sings "It Had To Be You", heavily orchestrated composition copying the style of Hollywood movies' songs from 50s-60s. It was just a movie ....

If you like nu jazz, Molvaer's music or want to hear great modern nu jazz movie soundtrack, try to find this album. Differently from other Molvaer's releases it was released in France and it looks it wasn't noticed outside of the country.
