Radiohead guitarist composing music for Inherent Vice.

RADIOHEAD guitarist Jonny Greenwood is composing the music for Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming movie Inherent Vice, according to Film Music Reporter.

The star-studded film – the cast now counts Joaquin Phoenix, Jena Malone, Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Benicio Del Toro and Owen Wilson among its stars – is based on Thomas Pynchon's 2009 novel of the same name. The story revolves around Doc Sportello (Phoenix), a pot-smoking private eye who criss-crosses Los Angeles in 1970 investigating a missing person case.

Greenwood has scored Anderson's two previous films: There Will Be Blood and The Master. He has also written music for the films Norwegian Wood (2010) and We Need to Talk About Kevin (2011) as well as several pieces as composer-in-residence for the BBC Concert Orchestra. According to the report, his score for the upcoming film is set to be recorded this month with London's Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Inherent Vice is slated for release in late 2014. – AFP Relaxnews

ABBA inducted into Swedish Music Hall of Fame

Posted: 07 Feb 2014 02:05 AM PST

The Swedish Music Hall of Fame is set to open next month in the same building as the ABBA museum.

LEGENDARY Swedish pop band ABBA is among the 12 first artistes to join the Swedish Music Hall of Fame, which celebrates the country's rich pop tradition.

"I think it's a nice thing to do, to create a Swedish Music Hall of Fame," 67-year-old former ABBA member Benny Andersson said on Thursday.

"Through the years, there were so many very influential, good songwriters and artistes and I think it's a good thing to make a collection of all of them."

As expected, the most famous Swedish band of all times eclipsed all other artistes on the list, such as Roxette or metal band Entombed.

"We would probably be the only band that you know about. Maybe Roxette ... otherwise, it's sort of a Swedish thing," Andersson said, showing pride in keeping his celebrity status 32 years after the group broke up.

"After all this time, I'm very grateful, proud and surprised," he said.

Pop pioneers ABBA sold 375 million records worldwide since its first recording in 1972.

The first 12 artistes, including jazz singer Monica Zetterlund (1937-2005) and Dutch-born singer-songwriter Cornelis Vreeswijk (1937-1987), were chosen by a jury of four music experts.

The Swedish Music Hall of Fame will open to the public on March 20 in the same building as the ABBA museum, which has received more than 275,000 visitors since it opened in May 2013.

"Induction is not just recognition for the performers, but is also intended to build bridges between generations," the Swedish Hall of Fame said in a statement. – AFP Relaxnews
