Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Tangerine is the landmark comedy-drama film from director Sean S. Baker (Starlet). Shot entirely on iPhone 5s cameras in Los Angeles, Tangerine follows a transgender prostitute on Christmas Eve who has just finished a prison sentence. After finding out from her friend and fellow prostitute that her boyfriend and pimp has been cheating on her, she becomes enraged and takes to the streets to find her unfaithful partner. The soundtrack paints an aggressive, surreal picture of Hollywood full of high-energy trap music and pumping electronic beats. The sound grabs you immediately and never lets go.
