MOKB Exclusive : Our Idiot Brother Soundtrack : Cowboys and Hobos (featuring Nina Persson)

I can’t resist the adorable charm of Paul Rudd, so it’s impossible not to be a little excited about the release of  Our Idiot Brother, featuring Rudd as a naive, free spirit who looks for the answers to life with his dog (named Willie Nelson) and generally drives his family nuts. With Zooey Deschanel starring as one of his sisters, it’s almost too much adorable charm to handle in one movie.

Sadly, you won’t hear any tracks from She & Him on the soundtrack, but you’ll get a nice sample of old and new: Willie Nelson, Carole King, Fruit Bats, Thao with The Get Down Stay Down and GenerationalsCowboys and Hobos grabbed my attention because Nina Persson of The Cardigans lends her vocals to the track. If, like me, you yearn for another tune in the vein of Lovefool that drips with pop goodness, you’re in for a surprise. Cowboys and Hobos is a loping, quiet country tune likely to leave a tear in your beer. Nina’s voice is as pure as ever and the harmonies with Nathan Larson and Eric D. Johnson are lovely. (Nina, if you’re reading this, we really miss The Cardigans.) Get the soundtrack on Amazon tomorrow.
