A two CD release, an outstanding tribute to director/screenwriter Wes Anderson. I Saved Latin! Features today's best artists covering songs that have appeared in his films Bottle Rocket, Rushmore, Royal Tenenbaums, Life Aquatic, Darjeeling Limited, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and more. Includes covers of songs by the Kinks, Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Elliot Smith, Nick Drake, Nico, Cat Stevens, Love, John Lennon, the Zombies, Mark Mothersbaugh, among others. The 6 panel eco-wallet features exclusive Wes Anderson-inspired illustrations by critically acclaimed rock poster designer Lonny Unitus.

Highly original and extremely well executed, this a wonderful cover's album with the great curated tunes from Wes Anderson films. It gives me all the feels from my memories of the fabulous movies for which they were chosen. Made me want to go back and watch all the films. Great cover versions that offered unique takes on the originals.
