Soundtrack NY was very excited to work with the always funny David Cross on his film "Hits," which premiered at this year's 2014 Sundance Film Festival. David Cross, who you know from "Arrested Development" and "Mr. Show", wrote "Hits". This was also his directorial debut. "Hits," edited by Patrick Colman, stars Matt Walsh from "VEEP," and Meredith Hagner from "Men at Work" and "Royal Pains." You'll also see other familiar faces in "Hits", like Michael Cera, Julia Stiles, Wyatt Cenac and Jason Ritter, just to name a few. The film is a dark comedy that takes place in upstate NY and involves a municipal worker, Dave (played by Matt Walsh), whose life changes when his rants at City Hall go viral. "Hits" was mixed by Dan Brennan in Studio F at NY, with editorial work by supervising sound editor Louis Bertini, dialogue editor Craig Kyllonen, ADR/Foley Mixer Ric Schnupp, and foley editor Justine Baker.

It’s been a busy Spring for the AirCraft office. The interns and staff have all hands on deck working on placements in spots for Cadillac, Bank of America, Volvo, Subway, Atlantic Broadband, Dunkin Donuts, and Friendly’s, to name a few, as well as placements in NBC Universal’s Royal Pains, and Ken Strong’s independent film “My Elusive Mychele”. We have also filled our time with four new album releases, starting with “Energetic Ease Volume 2,” the second half of an upbeat acoustic rock series. Next is “Retro Modern,” a collection of tunes with a 60’s/70’s feel and a modern edge. In late April, “Corporate Strings” was released, full of new-age orchestral pieces that can motivate the masses, in or out of the boardroom.
Our most recent CD, “Indie Pop,”  is AirCraft’s 219th album. For those looking for tracks in the style of Fun., The Postal Service and Ray LaMontagne, these songs create the perfect easy-going vibe for a springtime soundtrack, by making your sheets brighter and donuts even tastier. Bringing a little extra happiness to our library in this collection are composers Judson Lee, Alex Byrne, Dow Brain and Darien Shulman. 
IndieTracks has been expanding as well, with new submissions every day. Now at 3,700 unique pieces, the IndieTracks catalog has a wide variety of tracks that fit into an endless number of genres and users. IndieTracks is also happy to report recent placements for Cigna and Blue Cross, as well as Carnival Cruise Lines.
As always, we can perform free music searches, anytime! We are always available at or at (800) 343-2514.

This newsletter is our way of keeping you in touch with the things that The Soundtrack Group is doing to use developing technology, a terrific staff and a little chutzpah to handle your projects.
