Selections From The FIFA Soccer 12 Soundtrack

Another year brings another FIFA game and, with it, another topnotch soundtrack! I picked a few of my favorite tracks from the game to share below. Check out the entire tracklist at FIFA soundtracks dot com. I meant to post this days ago but I got stuck sitting on the couch, posted in front of the tele playing the game demo. Whoops!

Le game!

ALL MANKIND – Break The Spell:

I get the feeling I’m going to hate this one eventually because every movie producer on the face of the earth will attach it to their Oscar-baiting trailer. I’ll enjoy it for the time being.

CHASE & STATUS – No Problem

A nightmare acid trip!

CSS – Hits Me Like A Rock

I wrote a little something about this video for Remezcla.

GRAFFITI6 – Stare Into The Sun

The Caucasian Gnarls Barkley.

THE JAPANESE POPSTARS – Let Go

For the record, these guys aren’t Japanese. They’re British. Also, this song features an appearance by Green Velvet. So, erm, yeah.

LA VIDA BOHEME – El Buen Salvaje

Here’s a hard rock band from Caracas, Venezuela. I love all the fuzzy distortion throughout the song.

PORTUGAL, THE MAN – Got It All (This Can’t Be Living Now)

Psychedelic Indie/Rock via Wasilla, Alaska/Portland, Oregon. Watch and listen even if you hate male singers with high-pitched voices.

THE NAKED & FAMOUS – Punching In A Dream

This is a little band from New Zealand that’s gaining fame for its psychedelic, 80’s New Wave influenced dance tunes.

THE TING TINGS– Hands

When did Madonna, Blondie and Soft Cell get together?

THIEVERY CORPORATION – Stargazer

Grab a cigar, a glass full of brandy and turn the lights down.
