Earl Brown and Michael Rooker on all digital platforms (including iTunes, Amazon and Spotify) on July 10, 2012. Bill Brown's enthusiasm clearly shows in the musical score for the film, which is written for orchestra with elements of subtle electronic sound design and solo instruments such as cello, performed by the acclaimed Tina Guo who contributed stylistic elements to the score underlining the film's setting. In a recent interview, Bill wrote "We were able to create a classic 'old west' vibe in a contemporary musical setting using glissando cello lines which mimicked that raw 'fiddle' sound you've heard in westerns so many times, but with a darker, bigger emotion to them".
