The Mess Hall Band’s Jed Kurzel Scores The Sounds Of The Old West In Sundance Film Festival Winning Buddy Western
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. Their song “Slow West” is a driving acoustic-guitar instrumental… –Stereogum
Slow West (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is out now via Lakeshore Records. The album features score by Jed Kurzel (The Babadook, Macbeth). Jed is known for being the frontman of Australia’s award-winning The Mess Hall band. In addition, songs by Werner, Bryan Michael Mills, and Django Django. Preview the album below and see Slow West now playing in UK cinemas!
John Maclean’s Buddy Western Is Now On VOD, Own The Soundtrack Feat. Score By The Mess Hall’s Jed Kurzel
Perhaps it’s no huge surprise that one of the founding members of offbeat rock group The Beta Band made a quirky movie as his debut, and a Western at that, but that’s exactly what musician turned filmmaker John Maclean did. An old pal of Michael Fassbender (he directed him in the terrific short “Pitch Black Heist” a few years back) McClean’s “Slow West,” is a whimsical fairy tale-esque American West fable that puts a wry spin on a dark story of love, revenge and fate. Read the full story at IndieWIRE/The Playlist.
