Seven Psychopaths [Soundtrack]

Seven Psychopaths [Soundtrack]

by Carter Burwell



Playwright, screenwriter, and director Martin McDonagh's second feature film, the kinetic, absurdist comedy Seven Psychopaths, boasts a soundtrack that matches its maverick spirit, employing Carter Burwell (Fargo, In Bruges) for the score along with a handful of offerings from the likes of Hank Williams ("Angel of Death"), the Stone Poneys feat. Linda Ronstadt ("Different Drum"), Josh T. Pearson ("Country Dumb"), Deer Tick ("Dirty Dishes"), and the Walkmen ("Angela Surf City," "Stranded"). Burwell can conjure up dread and tension with the best of them, and his work here is stellar as usual, especially when sandwiched between works from Berlioz and Carl Orff, but it's Seven Psychopaths' pacing that ultimately wins out, striking the perfect balance between beauty and mayhem.
