Pitchfork has the soundtrack listing for the new movie "Wicker Park," and there's not a single Wicker Park band on it. Although you're likely to hear The Shins, Deathcab for Cutie, Postal Service or Mogwai blasting out of just about any apartment, coffeeshop or bar in the neighborhood, it would've been nice of them to throw a local act in there somewhere.
