AllMusic Review by

A suitably evocative collection of dialogue snippets, incidental music, and licensed songs from varying indie rock and pop artists, the soundtrack for directors Alan and Gabriel Polsky's big-screen adaptation of author Willy Vlautin's Reno, Nevada-based mystery/thriller Motel Life features original music from David Holmes (Ocean's Eleven) and Keefus Ciancia (True Detective), along with contributions from the Kills ("Wait"), Little Hurricane ("Give 'Em Hell"), Justin Townes Earle ("They Killed John Henry"), Jonathan Clay ("Fit to Be Tied"), and Townes Van Zandt ("Mr. Mudd and Mr. Gold").
