Anyone else having déjà vu? It was just over four years ago that cult film director David Lynch released his debut album as a solo artist, Crazy Clown Time (PIAS Records) just in time for Halloween. One listen to that album—inspired by Angelo Badalamenti, composer for Lynch's iconic Twin Peaks (and other films), who Lynch says "brought me into the world of music"—and you know it's a fitting soundtrack for the season. "Undulating waves of dark, ambient fuzz" create an overall "bluesy weirdness," as writers Gwendolyn Elliott of Seattle Weekly and Adam Kivel of Time put it, respectively.
Again we see Lynch's latest release, Polish Night Music, a collaboration with Polish composer and concert pianist Marek Zebrowski, attuned to the time. Originally released in 2007 as a limited edition CD, Polish Night Music will be re-issued November 13 as a double vinyl album via (what else?) Sacred Bones Records.
Check out "Night - A Landscape With Factory" below. Downright spooky stuff, like Brian Eno on quaaludes. Not only does it carry the torch of a release like Crazy Clown Time, it ups the ante. Press materials say it's suggestive of "barren train stations, Polish factories at night, and silent hotels where lonely travelers meet." Sure, there's that. You might add abandoned cemeteries, creepy basements, and foreboding woods to the list, too.
Lynch is currently at work on a hybrid memoir-biography called Life and Work, due sometime in 2017. Oh yeah, we've heard something about a Twin Peaks reboot, too?
