UNKLE End Titles ... Stories for Film

With this latest Shoreditch spaghetti western inspired by and for an Abel Ferrara film, UNKLE has traded furrowed exasperations for much more arcing aspirations. String-laced incidental music slowly sweeps in next to gently frayed tracks with a more blunted stomp, featuring Pablo Clements, Josh Homme, Black Mountain, Gavin Clark, and more.
