If you're over the age of 25 (which most of you aren't), then you might want to YouTube Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra's classic duets over 3 collaborative albums and a sound that still haunts after 50 years, especially since they had the use of one of the greatest guitarists EVER - the immortal Duane Eddy.

Well, this band, "The Handsome Family," have decided to re-create their sound, their lazy lyrical goodness, the echoes of both acoustic and bass guitars wailing in the background, and gave it just a little more energy then their original predecessors.

Their result is still pretty amazing, and just a touch haunting, and I commend them for their attempt to copy Hazlewood and Sinatra... but the originals sounded better and had a much more clearer delivered message of hopelessness, depression and sadness.

Sorry guys... there's nothing like the real thing.

(I encourage the reader to YouTube one H&S's last releases - a little haunting ditty called "She Won't." You'll immediately want al three of their duets albums, and you'll be so glad you did...)

If you happen to be a fan of "True Detective" on HBO then you already like this moody piece which precedes one of the best new shows on TV. Any project that has T-Bone Burnett working on its soundtrack has to be worthwhile. I uses my Shazam app to discover the artist/s and downloaded it within 5 minutes, with this show I keep it handy because I have a thing for this type of bluesy country music. When I was young (and dinosaurs roamed the earth) I would listen to my transistor radio every morning for the "pick of the week" and decided whether it had the potential of being a hit and if so, run 7 blocks to my local record store and fork out .69 plus tax for that 45! Those days are gone but my appetite to be one of the first listeners to buy a song remains strong. Anyway, great song and a great show!

Since the very first episode of True Detective on HBO, I have been enthralled with this song. I really love the music. It is the kind of melody that sticks in your head.

Not just a typical Sountrack song, this song delivers throughout. A haunting piece of music that is the lead in for the HBO show True Detective

Haunting music with great voices. Perfect theme for the series it represents. A good kind of creepy. Buy it now.

What's to say? If you watched the show, you will likely love this and wallow in the memories it drums up. If you didn't watch the show, and you like folksy, indie type music, you won't be disappointed. Simple folksy/country feel overlaid on complex, intricate chord changes and great, constant rhythm.

My wife and I love the HBO show True Detective so I downloaded the theme song like I do for many of the shows we enjoy.
