If you enjoy the mellow lullaby’s of Jack Johnson you might be interested to hear a track he created for the soon to be released movie 180 Degrees South: Conquerers of the Useless; a movie about a couple of guys who took a road trip from Ventura, California to hike Mt. Fitzroy in Argentina in the 1960’s. This movie takes them there again as they reattempt the hike and recollecting the initial 60’s roadtrip through the wild and rugged roads of Central and South America. The movie compares trips past and present.
Johnson contributed his version of underground folk singer-songwriter Greg Brown’s Spring Wind as part of the soundtrack. Spring Wind is appearently a song that Johnson has played off and on his live shows and decided to officially record in the studio. The song is good, nothing particularly mind blowing, but keeps constant with Johnson’s normal sound and style.
