Level 98: Jesse Harlin (Yoku’s Island Express)

Composer Jesse Harlin wrote the music for Yoku’s Island Express from Villa Gorilla, and WOW this soundtrack is good. In a way, I don’t want to spoil it, because we talk about nearly every single track Jesse put on the album.

It’s safe to say I have *several* favorite tracks, in part because the music goes through so many different styles. There’s trip hop tracks, music flavored with the sounds of Hawaii and Polynesia, Tuvan throat singing, sitar, Renaissance music, and a spot on tribute to Pink Floyd’s lead guitarist, David Gilmour (one of my personal favorite musicians).
