Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds -- Murder Ballads

I am not sure if my first post here on Lumpley Games is breaking the "old forum" rule, but I thought I would mention a couple of things. Nick Cave helped write a movie called "The Proposition" which was set in the early years of Australia. There is a soundtrack available for that which he wrote with Warren Ellis.

Since I am mentioning this, I should go ahead and mention Deadwood's soundtrack too. The movie "The Proposition" and the show "Deadwood" are similar in their dirty and brutal interpretation of the wild west. Both of those soundtracks can be found on Amazon.

After hearing all of the great things about this game I just ordered the game today and I am very excited to read it.

Dammit, I just came to this thread to recommend that very same album. The movies awesome as well. Go watch.

The soundtrack for our next session is likely to be Kaiser Chief's Angry Mob and I predict a riot.

I picked up The Proposition, the soundtrack, I haven't watched the movie yet. (You'll believe it when I say that I've watched a million zillion Westerns and now I don't jump quite as fast to see them.)

The Proposition soundtrack reminds me of Nick Cave's pieces on Rogue's Gallery. I was a fan back in the day, it's great to hear his new stuff and find that it's really frickin' good.

Hi Vincent,

I was sorely dissappointed in the Proposition as a movie, but was very happy with Cave's soundtrack.

Cheers,
Darcy

Just wanted to add that Iron & Wine is a great addition to any Dogs soundtrack. Seriously.

For more low key/emotional background stuff, I heartily recommend..

Daniel Lanois:
http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&searchlink=DANIEL|LANOIS&sql=11:3jfoxqt5ld0e~T0
"Shine" (vocals) and "Belladona" (instrumental)

Really evocative stuff, awesome slide too.  The instrumental stuff manages to sound both traditional and a bit otherworldly at the same time.

Lanois' other albums "Acadie" and "The Beauty of Winona" have some material that may also work really well (ex. the first two tracks on "Acadie")

Some of the stuff on Emmy Lou Harris' "Wrecking Ball" album (collaboration w/Daniel Lanois) is also great mood stuff, on topic emotionally ("Deeper Well", "Orphan Girl", etc.).

Lori Mckenna:
"Bittertown"
http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:gnfwxqualdae

Patty Griffin:
"Children Running Through"
http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:gxfoxqurldde~T0

These two have a couple DitV musical fishes to pull out for mood, though more on the poignant/bright side.  Both great albums nonetheless.

And, if it hasn't been mentioned yet, I'd have to seriously push anything by the Reverend Horton Heat for action scenes.  Serious boot kicking stuff.

If you're blending anything asian with DitV, you'll seriously want to check out a CD on Water Lily Acoustics label called "Tabula Rasa", which features Bela Fleck on some wicked Banjo with a virtuoso vina player (a vina is like a big sitar which sits horizontal on the ground and is played with a slide) who strung an Arabic acoustic guitar like a vina, a phenomenal Chinese erhu player, a south Indian temple drummer, and a other musicians.  Recorded in an old church somewhere in California, on a pair of hand made tube mics, amps and 2-track.  Immensely elegant stuff that doesn't sound quite like anything else.  There's some other stuff on Water Lily Acoustics like it, notably the Taj Mahal collaboration.
