I just wanted an excuse to think about True Detective more as I wait for the 7th episode, so here's a post about the music which includes the show's title sequence theme song "Far From Any Road" by The Handsome Family, and info on the well curated songs in each episode.

Check out what they played in episode 1, episode 2, episode 3, episode 4, episode 5, and episode 6. Names include a lot of country and folk classics mixed with newer indie rock stars, metal, psych rock and more. The Black Angels were in episode one and their tourmate Roky Erickson appeared via his band The 13th Floor Elevators in episode 2. Father John Misty, Lucinda Williams, Vashti Bunyan, Steve Earle, Melvins, Nick Cave's Grinderman, Sleep (!), Primus, Wu-Tang Clan, Omar Rodríguez-López's Bosnian Rainbows, and the Kinks all made the cut so far too. Who is the Yellow King though?

UPDATE: Check out the music from episode 7.

Listen to the Handsome Family intro song below...

Rocks and Gravel is a great, great song.

the investigation doesn't end with season 1; the case goes throughout several seasons. it's more of a character study.

It actually does end with Season 1 . Next season is new characters, new actors, new setting, new story. Nick pizzolatto is writing but Cary Fukunaga may not direct.

You caught me with the Handsome Family, I like them a bunch. Never heard of this show, but it looks like something I could get into.

Not only am I the Yellow King, I used to fuck and get fucked by other males at my alma mater, Wesleyan University. I sucked off a lot of guys too (at Wesleyan).

season ends with mcconaughey killing harrelson and them not finding the killer. next season picks up with same case in a different setting with different characters/storyline, but still revolves around the yellow king. so no, the investigation doesn't end.

no it doesn't . they don't even know if there's going to be a season 2
