Various Artists Frontier Life: Banda Sonora
- Words: Fitz Gitler
- Label: Accretions
The soundtrack to Hans Fjellestad's documentary Frontier Life mirrors the film by diving past the surface image of Tijuana to find the hidden culture that has arisen on the frontier. Members of Tijuana's Nortec Collective and San Diego's Trummerflora Collective contribute music created especially for the film. Drum machines, samplers and synth sounds combine to create quirky, bubbly bits of electro and edgy ambience, with the connections to the nortéo country music heritage well-hidden within the rhythmic patterns. Great music that is more laptop than Latin.
