Exclusive Soundtrack Premiere! Mike McCready's "Tree Fractal"

Image placeholder title

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready is debuting "Tree Fractal," the first track from his original score for the film, The Glamour & The SqualorTODAY exclusively for the Guitar Player community.

The Glamour & The Squalor tells the story of radio deejay Marco Collins, whose passionate support for indie bands on Seattle's alt-rock station 107.7 "The End" helped bring Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Garbage, Weezer, and others to international renown throughout the early and mid 1990s.

The film's score will be released on September 1, 2017 by Lakeshore Records, and, in addition to the songs composed and recorded by McCready, Lakeshore will also release a companion "various artist" soundtrack containing rare live-on-the-radio performances by No Doubt, Mudhoney, Sebadoh, Bush, Presidents of the USA, Super Deluxe, and others who visited the 107.7 studios back in the day. Soundtrack release date TBD."

To craft the moods for the soundtrack, McCready used not only his guitars, but also a Mellotron, autoharp, strings, and other instruments.

“The score for The Glamour & The Squalor is dedicated to [my wife] Ashley, who helps me with my musical vision, and who is my muse," says McCready, "and to my kids who inspire me daily. Thanks to Marco for allowing me to help his story, and to the entire cast and crew of The Glamour and The Squalor film. This is also in remembrance of all the musicians from Seattle who aren’t here anymore, but their music remains.”
