Give Ry Cooder's soundtrack for "Last Man Standing" a listen. I love Cooder's soundtracks.several years ago bill frisell released his album disfarmer, which immediately resonated with me. it did such a great job painting an image of a bygone time and place; an old america. i'm wondering if you guys can recommend me some artists/albums featuring a similar sound. there's something so eerie yet light and beautiful about it. listening to it i imagine vast landscapes and the hardships (and triumphs) of living in late 19th century america. daniel lanois- ironically canadian- also does a terrific job painting a similar image on his belladonna album. there will be blood also had a similar sonic atmosphere. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated as i really love that sound- great for just relaxing in a dark room, sipping on some rye and letting your mind roam.
