Lerra Lynn - Lately/ My Least Favourite Life

OLD PA'S WEDNESDAY CLUB

TRUE DETECTIVE
THE GOODIES

 
LERA LYNN - My Least Favourite Self

I heard quite good reports about the first series of True Detective so as the second series was just starting I thought I would give it a shot.

As the titles credits started with Nevermind by Leonard Cohen I was immediately hooked. During a scene in a bar a girl was singing solo and the song was very dark. I was being influenced by the music rather than what I was watching.

After the first episode I think I liked it, the characters all seemed to be broken people which is good of course. But as the series progressed it appeared to me that they all were 'too' broken and it was all a little too much and over the top in the broken stakes.

The storyline was a bit mixed up and a little complicated but I stuck with it to the end.

The best thing was the soundtrack which contained songs also by Dylan and by Nick Cave, you can't go wrong there. The highlight was the songs featured through out the series in that dark bar when Lera Lynn sang her dark songs.

What a great song! Must watch True Detective if it features more music like this.

Missed the 1st series and there's just too much to catch up on but I love these tracks, right up my street. 'Too much and over the top in the broken stakes'....like it!
