All The Real Girls – Sanctuary

This melancholic accompaniment to the David Gordon Green slow-burner draws succour from the nocturnal chambers of alt.country's heart. Will Oldham's "All These Vicious Dogs", Sparklehorse's "Sea Of Teeth" and Mogwai's "Fear Satan" are more than willing to cry into your beer. David Wingo, whose lyric yielded the film's title, couples with Michael Linnen for three tracks; Mark Olson and Paul Jones also peer for clouds among the silver linings. I'm writing this on the hottest day of the year, and it sounds inappropriate.

This melancholic accompaniment to the David Gordon Green slow-burner draws succour from the nocturnal chambers of alt.country’s heart. Will Oldham’s “All These Vicious Dogs”, Sparklehorse’s “Sea Of Teeth” and Mogwai’s “Fear Satan” are more than willing to cry into your beer. David Wingo, whose lyric yielded the film’s title, couples with Michael Linnen for three tracks; Mark Olson and Paul Jones also peer for clouds among the silver linings. I’m writing this on the hottest day of the year, and it sounds inappropriate. But, rest assured, there’ll be times when it sounds entirely right.
