The book Blood Meridian to music

A musical/lyrical interpretation of Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy was created by Ben Nichols of Lucero fame.   The EP is titled “The Last Pale Light in the West”.

I tried to share the entire album as a stream on here, but it didn’t seem to like that.  For now though, you can listen to one of the tracks here on Grooveshark:  http://grooveshark.com/s/Toadvine/2M6a8r.  All of the other songs from the EP can also be listened to on Grooveshark.

You can find the CD on Amazon here:  http://www.amazon.com/The-Last-Pale-Light-West/dp/B001MW0IWU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1337970025&sr=8-2

I hear they are making a Blood Meridian film. The producers would be doing themselves a big disservice by not choosing Nichols to flesh out the soundtrack.  Quite an excellent job of representing the literature in song.
