Is that Angelo Badalamente music? I must have it!

Sure is. The soundtrack will be out on vinyl, CD and MP3 September 8.

Amazon pre-order:  http://amzn.to/2thdyO2

I saw that the songs from last week's episodes have been added on iTunes to the various upcoming soundtracks. I wonder if the one that John Keady mentioned - which I also really liked - is titled "The Fireman." Any insight on that? I'm hoping that song is on the soundtrack.

One of the reviews I read said it was Laura's theme played backwards.  I've no way of verifying that.

Thanks, Nathan! That's a massive clue about Carel Struycken's character.

Interesting development.  Great music, too.  I like the "Slow 30s Room" music, also.

One of Angelo Badalamenti's trademarks is the use of suspended chords. This is when you play notes that don't quite go together. It's great for creating an eerie mood. 

A nice example is "Fred's World" from Lost Highway:

And of course, the end of FWWM:

But even the main intro theme to Twin Peaks is based on suspended chords. Those main keyboard chords that start it off are suspended chords. It's what gives it that feeling of "beautiful, but something's not quite right here".

So it just seems that suspended chords are Bdalamenti's thing...

Glad to be on this forum. Been reading it for a while, but decided to actually join and comment. Really enjoying the new season so far.

On another music note, I'm really hoping Julee Cruise contributes at least one new song to this season.

This is so cool, my compliments for finding it out. Makes total sense

Atomic bomb= Fire(walk with me) = death/evil

Charred men=Woodsmen = providers of the wood that keeps the Fire going

??????? = Fireman = the one which can shut the evil down

I like 'em, too.  An unresolved tonality which works either as major or minor.  I use them in my own stuff - Rock/Metal and Killing Joke use them quite a lot, too.  Suzanne Vega uses them but she's a polar opposite musically from Joke's stuff or mine.  Just goes to show how versatile they are.
