Just wanted to add that Iron & Wine is a great addition to any Dogs soundtrack. Seriously.

For more low key/emotional background stuff, I heartily recommend..

Daniel Lanois:
"Shine" (vocals) and "Belladona" (instrumental)

Really evocative stuff, awesome slide too.  The instrumental stuff manages to sound both traditional and a bit otherworldly at the same time.

Lanois' other albums "Acadie" and "The Beauty of Winona" have some material that may also work really well (ex. the first two tracks on "Acadie")

Some of the stuff on Emmy Lou Harris' "Wrecking Ball" album (collaboration w/Daniel Lanois) is also great mood stuff, on topic emotionally ("Deeper Well", "Orphan Girl", etc.).

Lori Mckenna:

Patty Griffin:
"Children Running Through"

These two have a couple DitV musical fishes to pull out for mood, though more on the poignant/bright side.  Both great albums nonetheless.

And, if it hasn't been mentioned yet, I'd have to seriously push anything by the Reverend Horton Heat for action scenes.  Serious boot kicking stuff.

If you're blending anything asian with DitV, you'll seriously want to check out a CD on Water Lily Acoustics label called "Tabula Rasa", which features Bela Fleck on some wicked Banjo with a virtuoso vina player (a vina is like a big sitar which sits horizontal on the ground and is played with a slide) who strung an Arabic acoustic guitar like a vina, a phenomenal Chinese erhu player, a south Indian temple drummer, and a other musicians.  Recorded in an old church somewhere in California, on a pair of hand made tube mics, amps and 2-track.  Immensely elegant stuff that doesn't sound quite like anything else.  There's some other stuff on Water Lily Acoustics like it, notably the Taj Mahal collaboration.

I built a soundtrack for my DitV game last night. Here's what I came up with:

1 - The Man Comes Around (Johnny Cash)
2 - Red Right Hand (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds)
3 - Down to the River to Pray (Alison Krauss)
4 - Wagon Wheel (Old Crow Medicine Show)
5 - Angel Band (The Stanley Brothers)
6 - It's a Dark Day (Reverend Horton Heat)
7 - The Old Account (Johnny Cash)
8 - God's Got It (Old Crow Medicine Show)
9 - Way Down in the Hole (The Blind Boys of Alabama)
10 - God Will (Lyle Lovett)
11 - Roses and Bones (Stone Coyote)
12 - The Six Strings That Drew Blood (Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds)
13 - God's Gonna Cut You Down (Johnny Cash)
14 - I'll Fly Away (Alison Krauss and Gillian Welch)

The idea was to follow the story of a typical Dogs game, from the Dogs coming to town/the sinners doing their sinnin' (tracks 1-3), through the initial "yay, the Dogs are here to name our babies and bless our houses!" (tracks 4-5), then on into the discovery that All Is Not Well (tracks 6-9) and the judgment of the wicked (tracks 10-13). I initially planned to end with God's Gonna Cut You Down, but then I realized "I'll Fly Away" was just about the perfect song for the aftermath of a town, as the Dogs ride away into the sunset and leave the town behind.
