Say Goodbye To 'True Detective' With All The Music From The Series

And just like that, Rust Cohle and Martin Hart have disappeared from the psychosphere of our television sets, with HBO airing the final episode of "True Detective" season one last night. And everyone was watching. In fact, so many people hit the network's HBO GO service that it crashed, leaving many fans looking at an endless load sign, as they took to the Internet to voice their fury. But by now, fans have caught up with the fate of Rust and Martin and their search for The Yellow King, and are left with that feeling of what to do next.

True Detective, season finale

And just like that, Rust Cohle and Martin Hart have disappeared from the psychosphere of our television sets, with HBO airing the final episode of "True Detective" season one last night. And everyone was watching. In fact, so many people hit the network's HBO GO service that it crashed, leaving many fans looking at an endless load sign, as they took to the Internet to voice their fury. But by now, fans have caught up with the fate of Rust and Martin and their search for The Yellow King, and are left with that feeling of what to do next.

Well, we've got a solution that will hopefully hold you over until details of the second season emerge—all the music from "True Detective" season one. Unlike "Girls," where music forms a part of the package that's being sold around the show, the tunes in "True Detective" have always been about texture. In fact, it's so deeply woven, we truly didn't realize at the time that we were hearing songs by Wu-Tang Clan or School Of Seven Bells or Father John Misty. Indeed, the choices have been part of a fabric that includes lots of blues, gospel and old timey country.

So, if you're sitting at home or in the office today and want to experience "True Detective" all over again, the songs below will be good ones to spin. Take a listen...
