Title - Music from the Motion Picture No Postage Necessary
Artist - Charleene Closshey
For those not in the know, it was announced the digital-only soundtrack for
the Indie Dramedy "No Postage Necessary" will be available on Friday, October 19th, 2018.
Indeed, Talk About Love: Music from the Motion Picture No Postage Necessary marks the first soundtrack from singer/songwriter/composer, Charleene Closshey.
Furthermore, "No Postage Necessary" made history earlier this year when it became the first-ever film to be released via the Blockchain, allowing consumers to stream using cryptocurrency. The film was also released in
select theaters July 6, 2018 and via blockchain technology and VOD on July 10th, 2018, and is now available on Blu-ray and DVD as of October 2nd, 2018.
In "No Postage Necessary," Sam (George Blagden) always seems to make the wrong decision. A convicted computer hacker, he's single, jaded and barred from using the internet. Forced to crash on his brother's couch, he makes ends meet by working at the local Twistee Treat and stealing mail while disguised as a postal worker.
Then, a single pink envelope changes everything. Handwritten by a heartsick Josie (Closshey) to her late husband and fallen Marine, the tender missive awakens something in Sam. Desperate to be worthy of such love, he conspires to meet the beautiful, young war widow, longing to become a better
As the two grow closer, she warms to the idea of a new chance at love, but not before Sam's past comes knocking in the form of an FBI agent looking for missing bitcoins.

The steamy, sexy, late night, underground club scene vibe of the title track kicks things off with the Celtic-flavored duet with Irish singer/songwriter Gareth Dunlop on 'Give Me Your Heart' along next.
The same song the two performed live in the film, that's followed by the beautiful ballad 'Galileo,' with another duet, this one with her "No Postage Necessary" co-star George Blagden, on the track ‘Til I Loved You.'
Blagden and Closshey actually co-wrote this track with Nashville veterans Brent Maher and slide guitar legend Mark Selby and it's a lovely little doozy of a country song, that's for sure.
The remainder of the album are varying degrees of instrumentals, with tracks such as the smoky jazz club, deep bass appeal of both 'Sam's Theme' and 'Sam Sneaks, Ames Lurks' being my two personal favorites.
There are also some lush, and at times haunting piano pieces ('The Letter,' 'Josie's Theme,' 'Live,' 'Acceptance Letter'), stirring works ('The Truth,' 'Stanley's Bible'), and the startlingly atmospheric duo of 'In Sam's Defense' and 'Walking Toward Grace.'
A little in-movie TV commercial ditty 'Twistee Treat' - that might have easily come from the cutting room floor discard pile associated with the movie 'It' - is a startling discovery and then the soundtrack wraps with a vibrant Trans Siberian Orchestra-esque number in 'Falling Backwards.'
