Originally recorded by the Handsome Family and made popular as the Theme Song from Season 1 of HBO's hit series, True Detective starring Matthew McConaughey; electronic soothsayer Comaduster invites us into the thematically bleak, ethereal world of "Far From Any Road" with hushed, guttural vocals and deliberately crawling, discordant percussion. Tension builds until a sudden shifting of tempo and mood transports us to an elevated, brighter place, lulling us to a welcome and placid destination.

Track Name: Far From Any Road
From the dusty mesa
Her looming shadow grows
Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote
She twines her spines up slowly
Towards the boiling sun
And when I touched her skin
My fingers ran with blood

In the hushing dusk under a swollen silver moon
I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom
And strange hands halted me, the looming shadows danced
I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands

When the last light warms the rocks
And the rattlesnakes unfold
Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones

And rise with me forever
Across the silent sand
And the stars will be your eyes
And the wind will be my hands
