Label: Sony Classical
The soundtrack to this much-lauded George Clooney vehicle has gotten almost as much attention as the film itself -- and no wonder, given the gorgeous collection of Hawai'ian folk and pop music assembled here. No Elvis kitsch (or even many electric slide guitars) here: just rolling, intricately worked acoustic guitars swaying around flowing, complicatedly harmonized vocals in the contemporary folk tradition. It's all lovely (if, with the exception of Lena Machado's juicy vintage cut, male-dominated), but your ears will gravitate to all the great tracks by dearly departed master Gabby Pahinui.
