Whattaya get when you compile a soundtrack album for a
big-grossing Mexican film and you want to capitalize on its momentum? Why, call
in leading man Gael Garcia Bernal, hip nu-Latin artists such as Mexican
Institute of Sound and Quiero Club and avowed Latin music fans Devendra Banhart
and the Black Lips, of course!

 

In the process, make sure that Bernal, in character, covers
a classic Cheap Trick song – in this case, a Mexican language version of “I
Want You To Want Me,” which you can view below just so you’ll know we’re not
pulling your leg. Seriously, this has to be seen to believe, right down to the cuchi dancers, the “Macarena”-style
dance steps and the soccer ball.

 

The film Rudo Y Cursi itself is already a hit in Mexico
ans will make its U.S.
premiere in L.A.
and NYC on May 8, followed by a full national rollout.

 

Here’s the scoop, courtesy Nacional Records, who will be releasing
the album on June 9:

 

 

 

Rudo y Cursi
is the first film to reunite superstars
Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna since their break-out performances in the
Oscar-nominated “Y Tu Mamá También.” García Bernal and Luna play two brothers
scraping by as laborers in rural Mexico, until one day a scout spies their
friendly game of soccer and sign them on as star athletes for rival teams.
They quickly learn that the high life of top players-fame, money, and beautiful
women-has a dark side. And when their professional rivalry turns bitter and personal,
the brothers see that they must reunite before they lose everything they once
dreamed of.

 

 

In addition to the
Garcia Bernal song, the soundtrack also features indie rock favorites like Juana
Molina
, The Black Lips, and Devendra Banhart performing their own versions of Regional Mexican classics. Nortec
Collective Presents Bostich + Fussible
and Mexican Institute
of Sound feat. Saul Hernandez (Jaguares)
round out the soundtrack’s
highlights with their own takes on some of their homeland’s most recognizable
songs.

The ‘Rudo y Cursi‘ soundtrack is co-produced by Camilo
Lara (Mexican Institute of Sound) and the film’s director
Carlos Cuaron.

 


“The idea to record Latin alternative versions of Regional Mexican classics
actually came to me after I saw the movie for the first time,” Lara explains.
“There wasn’t much room for new music and even less room for ‘modern’ music. So
while talking with Carlos we decided it was a really great idea to approach
artists to record new versions.”
