a se d on the novel The Wettest
Country In The World by Matthew
Bondurant, Lawless is a wild, four
sheets to the wind story of a family
of bootleggers during the Prohibition Era .
Thefilmis a visceral, earthytale that reeks
of sawdust, whiskey stills and gunpowder,
a nd its soundtrack is a mesmerising journey
into this world of loya lty, treachery a nd
desperate sur vival.
It’s a masterful collection of songs –
contemporary numbers from the likes of
Lou Reed, Townes Van Zandt and Captain
Beef he art delivered with an Appalachian twist
by the Bootleggers (Nick Cave and Warren

(Ministry of sound)
n easy going but, in the end, fairly
sweaty selection of songs, Chillout
Sessions X V feature s some great
c ontemporary tracks with some
fairly interesting mixes, but its title is a bit
of a misnomer.
Disc one starts things off in a cool,
relaxed way, with tracks from Gotye and
Missy Higgins slipping out of the speakers

Ellis) and led by a host of legendary singers
such as Ralph Stanley and Emmylou Harris.
Having previou sly worked together on
the powerful soundtrack s to The P roposition
a nd The A ssassination Of Jesse James By The
Coward Robert Ford, it comes a s no surprise
that Cave and Ellis could pull off something
special. And they have.
Utilising an 85 year old bluegrass vetera n
to perform Lou Re ed’s ode to heroin, White
Light/White Heat in a film about bootleg
white lightning is a stroke of understated
genius , wrapping the pa st, the present, the
hillbilly back porch and the seedy alley ways
of New York City into one universal pa rcel.
It seems the story remains the same, only
the people and places have changed.
With addition al voc al c ontribution s
from the angelic Emmylou Harris , the
gravelly Mark Lanegan and the wistful Willie
Nel son, the album is a uniquely cinematic
c ol lection of non-cinematic pieces that does
that rare thing that many soundtracks are
unable to do, which is to stand by itself as an

in comfortably one after another. As a
c hillout compilation, its purpose is well
served – although there are 20 tracks from
as many artists they do all seem to blend
together a s one.
Whispering past like an extremely light
breez e they form a perfect soundtrack with
the volume turned down low.
Disc 2 , however, takes a turn for the
worse and, given the amount of material on
of fer, it’s quite unnece ssa ry.
The chill seems to melt away a s the heat

the order of the day. Which is not to say
that it’s a bad selection with the likes of
La na Del Rey in there, but DCUP and
Volta Bure au sound more like “get up and
boogie” clarion calls than “chillout and lay
back ” a s the compilation’s title suggests.
A reasonably good, a lthough slightly
misguided, compilation which would h ave
been better served as a single disc. There are
enough great artists such as Angus Stone
a nd Alpine to raise it above average, but, at
the end of the day, contains too much out of
kilter filler to take it to the top of the class.
