I was in the cinema at the weekend to see Charlie Wilson's War (it's great by the way, very witty, wonderfully written and Philip Seymour Hoffman is a joy to watch) and before the show we sat through the obligatory ads. I've never been so enchanted by the soundtrack to an ad before as I was by Nina Nina Nastasia's voice over the Volvo v70 advert.
She sings the song "Our Day Trip" from her 2006 record "On Leaving". I had to rush out and get the album, I don't know how I didn't know about her before.
The song is 1.55 in length and is just about perfect except for the length. If only it lasted forever.
Read the Pitchfork review of "On Leaving".
