The Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack will be getting an early release that plays up the film's old-school origins. It will be available on vinyl at indie record stores today, one week ahead of the CD and digital versions' official November 11th street date. But more than coming out on vinyl, its real tie-in to the movie is its "throwback Sixties" price of $5.98.

The soundtrack features folk music by Dave Van Ronk, the Greenwich Village folk artist whose story served as the basis for the movie, as well as songs performed by Bob Dylan, Marcus Mumford, and some of the stars of the movie: actor Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan. The album was produced by T Bone Burnett and the Coen Brothers. It's the producers' fourth collaboration, one of which, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, won five Grammys. To celebrate Inside Llewyn Davis, the producers held a concert in September that featured Patti Smith, Elvis Costello, Joan Baez, Jack White, Conor Oberst and more.

The film follows around Llewyn Davis, a folk musician working his way around New York City's Greenwich Village in the 1960s, before the big folk explosion. In addition to the actors above, it also features John Goodman, F. Murray Abraham and two actors from Girls, Adam Driver and Alex Karpovsky. It's set to hit theaters on December 6th.

“Vans”

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
