Music from The OC: Mix 2
(Warner)
Perhaps a year spent with The OC’s characters makes this more affecting than the solid first mix, or perhaps the songs are just better. A balance between sensitive boy fare (Super Furry Animals’ “Hello Sunshine,” Nada Surf’s cover of “If You Leave,” Death Cab for Cutie’s “A Lack of Colour”) and the current new-wave-dance-rock trend (The Killers “Smile Like You Mean It,” Interpol’s endless “Specialist”) make for a time capsule of musical hipness. You won’t care in a year, but it kicks ass for now.
—Tara Thorne
