It’s that time of year when the entertainment industry turns its collective attention towards Park City, Utah, as the 2014 Sundance Film Festival is rapidly approaching over the ten days between Jan. 16-26. From the slew of hype-generating movies vying to be the next big thing in cinema to the endless celebrity-packed parties that pepper the city during the fest, Park City turns into the center of the entertainment universe.

Music has become an increasingly important part of the Sundance experience, with high-profile acts performing at the industry events to those same artists being tapped to soundtrack the hopeful movies being screened throughout the fest. Two such burgeoning features boast cues created by none less than Death Cab for Cutie/Postal Service frontman, Ben Gibbard, and former Beastie Boys rapper, Adam Horovitz, AKA “Ad-Rock.”

The movie is directed by Lynn Shelton, best known for such “mumblecore” movies as Humpday and My Sister’s Sister.
