Max Tannone—remix artist behind the Jay-Z/Radiohead mash-up Jaydiohead, the more recent Mos Def/Talib Kweli-meets-reggae mixes Mos Dub and Dub Kweli, and the Beastie Boys-meets-Beastie Boys Doublecheck Your Head—saw the Sam Rockwell movie Moon and, like a lot of right-thinking people, really dug it. So he’s put together Selene, a five-track concept EP that samples Clint Mansell’s score and bits of dialogue from Rockwell and Kevin Spacey, then combines it with lyrics about isolation, loneliness, and yes, cloning, from Brooklyn’s Richard Rich. If nothing else, hopefully this will encourage even more Clint Mansell mix-tapes; his Requiem For A Dream score has been begging for it for years. You can download Selene here or listen to whole thing below. [via io9]
