Wes Anderson’s films have become known for their terrific tunes: a mix of Mark Mothersbaugh with forgotten Seventies melancholia like Nico’s “These Days” (off “The Royal Tenenbaums”) or Cat Stevens’ “The Wind” (off “Rushmore”). In “The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou,” Anderson introduces his admirers to Seu Jorge, a Brazilian musician heretofore unknown in the States. In the film, he performs David Bowie songs in Portuguese on the deck of Team Zissou’s ship, The Belafonte. The songs, which include startlingly beautiful versions of “Starman,” “Life on Mars?” and “Rebel Rebel,” fill the latest soundtrack, out Tuesday.
