Got a light? Death Waltz Recordings celebrates the rich musical tapestry of the 2017 Twin Peaks limited series. Nearly every episode of the series has concluded with a surprise performance by a different musical act (except for Au Revoir Simone and the Chromatics, who each appear twice), like Saturday Night Live for the Pitchfork generation. The idea of some of these major label acts appearing randomly at a backwoods roadhouse in a small town in Washington is indeed hilarious, but consistent with the surreal, trans-dimensional nature of the series and Lynch’s bizarre sense of humor. Includes tracks from Rebekah Del Rio, The Platters, Au Revoir Simone, Shawn Colvin, The Paris Sisters, Blunted Beatz, Nine Inch Nails (“ladies and gentlemen, the roadhouse is proud to welcome The Nine Inch Nails!”), Trouble (a one-off collaboration between Lynch’s son Riley, Lynch’s music supervisor Dean Hurley and Alex Chang Hungtai aka Dirty Beaches), a new mix of Sharon Van Etten’s “Tarifa,” Booker T’s classic “Green Onions,” the Chromatics’ wonderful 2016 single “Shadow,” and Angelo Badalamenti’s “Twin Peaks Theme” for good measure (the rest of the original score appears on a separate double vinyl set). 20 tracks altogether on 180 gram red & white marbled + white & black double vinyl, housed in gatefold jacket with die-cut slip sleeve. Recommended.
