Brian Reitzell
Auto Music

The first solo album from the man behind scores for such films as The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, and Marie Antoinette, Brian Reitzell’s Auto Music plays much like a soundtrack in and of itself. Only nine tracks long, the album still rings in at 55 minutes, with some songs playing as long as nine minutes. Swirling, synth-y, ever-so-slightly 1980s, and completely devoid of vocals, Auto Music provides delicious and thoughtful background music. Light a candle, draw a bubble bath, and hit the peace pipe — you’re in for some serious contemplation.
