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


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.
