Let’s turn things upside down: here is the music, it’s up to you to imagine the movie! I see desert landscapes, never-ending tracks, small towns, dodgy characters and a silent hero. To my mind, the ideal director for such a movie would be Quentin Tarrantino, but the Cohen brothers would also fit the bill. Most tracks use the kind of guitar sound you would instantly identify as Western, some of them you would categorise as country, all of them definitely have a strong cinematic power of suggestion. Enjoy the (imaginary) ride.
