Chris Pine, Jason Schwartzman Perform Craig Wedren’s “Ontario Moon”

Huffington Post has shared footage from Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, featuring Chris Pine (yes, James T. Kirk himself) and Jason Schwartzman (Phantom Planet, Coconut Records) singing “Ontario Moon” under the fictional stage name Soul Glimmer  – WATCH HERE

Craig Wedren (Shudder To Think), composer of the soundtrack for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later called the song “the godforsaken jam band-y coffee house faux-troubadour codswallop I had to endure in order to hang out with my friends who went in for that sort of thing in the early 90s.” The track reflects Wedren’s comprehensive knowledge of popular music and an innate ability to shift his sound into the signature styles, structures and configurations of whatever time period is connected to the project. Creating a soundtrack that mirrors the best (and worst) of the 1990s grunge scene, Wedren is joined by Jefferson Friedman and Matt Novack, members of Craig’s Pink Ape composing team this time around for Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later, the third chapter in the franchise series.

Known for a wide array of musical adventures, as both a solo artist and front man for historic Washington D.C. post-hardcore scene band Shudder To Think, Wedren has also created a name for himself in film and television, composing and writing songs for projects like Velvet Goldmine, School of Rock, Anchorman, Reno 911, Don’t Trust the B**** in Apartment 23, Hung, Wet Hot American Summer and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp, GLOW and United States of Tara.

Huffington Post also broke the news on Wedren’s forthcoming 4th solo record, Adult Desire, by releasing a video for  the title track of the same name – CLICK HERE to listen. The new album, which is Wedren’s first since 2011, is set for an October release.

The first record he’s made since moving to LA, Wedren describes Adult Desire as “the strange magnificence of family, home, and age, and the weirdness of the mundane -kind of like the way David Lynch holds for just-too long on a shot of a lawn, turning it into something monstrous and beautiful. It’s basically a freaky love-letter to my wife and to my life; and of course, to our son.”
