“Slow West” affirms Jed Kurzel’s unique, rising voice in the domain of indie cinema, a score whose unplugged, acoustic sound has its roots in the composer’s Aussie band The Mess Hall – their folk-rock rock stylings bringing comparisons to The White Stripes. Making his scoring debut for brother Justin’s true-like serial killer film “The Snowtown Murders,” Kurzel’s evocative work has often graced shattered family ties, from the nerve-jangling music of a mother and son terrorized by “The Babadook” to the mesmerizing minimalism of a young thug trying to impress a seasoned criminal in “Son of A Gun” and the exhilaration and downfall of Australian skateboard brothers in the documentary “All this Mayhem” Now giving us his most stripped down, and lyrical score for “Slow West,” Kurzel brings a distinctive, Australian wryness to a universal genre while providing yet another unclassifiable, ear-catching score. -Daniel Schweiger, Film Music Magazine
