I have watch the first 4 episodes and each episode ends with a band playing at the Bang Bang Bar. I find the music at the end of episode 2 CHROMATICS "SHADOW" an amplified and too electric version of the music traditionally played on a Twin Peaks episode. It's like a show on MTV throwing a band on a high profile show to promote it's self.
I like the old rockabilly sound that lead the pacing of some of the scenes of the old series. Although I do hear it in a few scenes, the lack of scoring a scene seems to sanitize most of what I have seen so far.
I'm in the Black Lodge, with Dale cooper.
I agree the rockabilly sound was great and loved the operatic feel of the old show. Characters and situations had themes, and they were played constantly. To me, that sound will always be 50% of the aesthetic of the original.
This score/sound design seemed reflective of his recent stuff. The Chromatics kept the haunting voice feel while making it known that this is bang bang 2017. For me, the evolution is welcomed.
