Last year's Girls Rock! documentary was a blast. The locally-produced film offered up an inspiring glimpse at the power of the Rock 'n' Roll Camp for Girls as seen through the eyes of the campers, their parents, and the patient camp staff. You can view the trailer here, our kind review here, and a ridiculously cruel WW review here.
Now the film has a soundtrack, appropriately titled Girls Rock! The Soundtrack, out on Sarah Dougher's Cherchez la Femme Projects label. Featuring 15 tracks featured in the film, the artists run the gamet from the expected participants (Sonic Youth, Low), to local heavy-hitters (The Gossip, The Blow, Viva Voce), and even some past camp participants (Blübird) as well. But the best song has to be the opening number, the sing-along "Camp Theme Song" which establishes the mood and foundation for both the film and the soundtrack.
