Forget Game of Thrones. A better HBO show was Deadwood. (There are others better than both, but that is a conversation for another day.) The show’s ending left many wanting. HBO has finally returned to cap the story with a recently released movie. Watching Deadwood: The Movie was my Sunday night entertainment. More on my thoughts on the show ending and the movie to come on Wednesday (now up!).
Among Deadwood’s many virtues is an ability to create a striking atmosphere and tremendous source material. Canadian troubadour Colter Wall contributed to the atmosphere of the movie trailer with his song Sleeping on the Blacktop. He revisited some of the same source material with his song Wild Bill Hickok.
Sleeping on the Blacktop is off Wall’s EP Imaginary Appalachia.
Wild Bill Hickok is off Wall’s album Songs of the Plains.
