The Kids Are All Right: Original Soundtrack featuring MGMT, Little Dragon, Quadron, Ge-ology ft. Yukimi Nagano & more

The soundtrack for the critically acclaimed film, The Kids Are All Right, includes tracks from MGMT, Little Dragon, Quadron, Ge-ology ft. Yukimi Nagano, Betty Wright, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, CSS, and more. It accompanies a story about two teenaged children conceived by donor insemination who seek out their birth father and introduce him into the family life that their two mothers have built for them. Once the donor is found, the household will never be the same, as family ties are defined, re-defined, and then re-re-defined.

Focus Features and Gilbert Films present The Kids Are All Right, the most talked-about movie at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, in select theaters on July 9, starring Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, and Mark Ruffalo and directed by Lisa Cholodenko.

We’ve seen the original-nintendostylee music videos coming from Mark Ronson lately, and we’re all patiently waiting for his September release, Record Collection. Meanwhile, Tuesday night in London, Ronson was promoting the album with new band The Business International. Later in the performance, to the delight of the crowd, he was joined by his infamous collaborator Amy Winehouse. But audiences were let down when Amy only sang one song, for the encore. And when she did, she forgot the words.

Trainwrecks aside, Mark Ronson the producer is working in top form, and the new album features Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Boy George and Q-Tip. So when September rolls around, remember to pick up Record Collection.
