A few weeks ago, I mentioned that the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me soundtrack was chosen by NME as the best film soundtrack ever made. This week, NME called up its composer, Angelo Badalamenti, and asked him a few questions about the amazing album he created about 20 years ago together with David Lynch. Here are my favorite bits from the interview.
A Witch House and Okkvlt Guide To Twin Peaks is a witch house tribute to the world of Twin Peaks. Witch house, for the uninitiated which I bet are many, is a music genre which combines hip hop and dubstep rhythms, industrial noise and gothic rock. And then some.
I've been traveling the past week and a half (more on that later), and it's quite delightful to return home and discover not one but three freshly squeezed Twin Peaks goodies over at davidlynch.com. 2011 is clearly the year of the spoiled Twin Peaks fan! Along with 3 new songs, there are 8 new Twin Peaks backgrounds.
Word is out that David Lynch is has picked up on the Thought Gang project together with Angelo Badalamenti, and that the release of a 10-track album is imminent later this year. Meanwhile, here's the official video of their bad ass A Real Indication song that was featured on the Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me soundtrack.
David Lynch is relaunching davidlynch.com tomorrow as a digital music store and sensory experience. In an email to the New York Times, the director said there will be sound experiments from the past (unreleased Twin Peaks songs, perhaps?) and new music.
British dance music and club magazine, Mixmag, has recently interviewed David Lynch with regard to the release of Good Day Today. He talks about upcoming projects, recent musical discoveries and his personal favorite remix.
I couldn't resist participating in the Dancing Thom Yorke Dances To Everything meme that is all about adding different music to his Lotus Flower video. Some of his moves reminded me of the little man from another place, so the song choice was a no-brainer.
Last week, we created a one-stop page for you to listen to the entire Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me soundtrack anytime, any place. Today, we're sharing the original Soundtrack from Twin Peaks album in the same way.
David Lynch's latest musical venture is officially out today on deluxe double vinyl, deluxe CD and as MP3 download. Both the original version of the catchy dance record "Good Day Today" and the darker "I Know" are included, as well as remixes by the hands of Underworld, Boys Noize, Diskjokke, Sasha, Simon Ratcliffe (one half of Basement Jaxx) and Jon Hopkins.
Twin Peaks-obsessed electro-pop producer Bright Light Bright Light (Rod Thomas) has made a cover of Julee Cruise's "Falling". A fan living near the filming locations in the Snoqualmie area heard the cover, went out to shoot some moody footage of the Great Northern hotel and its falls, Ronnette's bridge, Mt. Si, the motel from Fire Walk With Me, the Twin Peaks High School, the Double R, among other places... and sent everything to the up-and-coming UK producer.
