The Old West Is New Again As John Maclean And Jed Kurzel’s Collaboration Invigorates The Western Genre
John MacLean was once a member of the Beta Band, the great and influential and weirdly underrated Scottish group. He directed some of their videos, and after the group’s breakup, he became a filmmaker. His first movie is Slow West, the new indie Western with Michael Fassbender. The composer Jed Kurzel did most of the Slow West score, but MacLean got one contribution from a band who almost certainly carries some Beta Band influence, the London art-poppers Django Django. –Stereogum
