Nick Cave, Courtney Love, Devendra Banhart, And A Million Others Paid Messy Tribute To Allen Ginsberg’s “Howl” In L.A.

It was an unusually wet evening in Los Angeles, and soggy Allen Ginsberg fans lined up outside the Theatre at the Ace Hotel to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the publication of Ginsberg’s legendary poem, “Howl.” They chatted excitedly about the show while glaring at the sky. Drought be damned, they were taking the sudde… More »

David Lynch – “The Big Dream (Moby Reversion Featuring Mindy Jones)”

David Lynch has gradually released bonus tracks and remixes from his 2013 album The Big Dream over the last few weeks. We’ve already heard Björn Yttling’s remix of “We Rolled Together,” but that and others were only available in the album’s limited deluxe edition. Now, for Record Store Day, Lynch will release a 12″ clear… More »

David Lynch – “And Light Shines”

As some of us are still freaking out over the rumors of a return to Twin Peaks, David Lynch has released a previously unheard tune that’s included on the new Super Deluxe Edition of last year’s The Big Dream. “And Light Shines” slinks along on a drum machine beat while Lynch preaches his strange poetry,… More »

David Lynch – “We Rolled Together (Yttling Jazz Remix)”

Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn And John has given the remix treatment to “We Roll Together” by director David Lynch. “Together” came off Lynch’s recent The Big Dream, an album about as strange as everything Lynch has done in his music career (which is really just an extension to the strangeness of his entire career).

David Lynch – “Bad The John Boy”

Film legend and weird-music neophyte David Lynch released The Big Dream, his second album, earlier this year, and he’s following it up with a buzzing, clanking, deeply ominous single called “Bad The John Boy.” The track has Lynch’s voice, heavily processed, leering and gibbering and snarling over a haunted thud of a beat, and if… More »

Stream David Lynch The Big Dream

David Lynch has been blowing minds cinematically for decades, and he’s lately been turning his attention toward music, using the medium as another vehicle for his uncanny creep-vibes. Lynch’s sophomore album The Big Dream lands next week, and we’ve already posted the songs “Star Dream Girl” and “Are You Sure?,” as well as the Lykke… More »

Nine Inch Nails – “Came Back Haunted” Video (Dir. David Lynch)

Nine Inch Nails made their triumphant return last month with “Came Back Haunted,” a throwback to their signature industrial-pop for their new album Hesitation Marks. David Lynch was enlisted to direct the clip and he delivered something akin to his shorts and the large non-sequitur parts of the narrative that happen in almost every one… More »

David Lynch – “Are You Sure?”

Has David Lynch been listening to Future? Because “Are You Sure?,” his latest song, has so much Auto-Tune that Lynch, singing in that amazingly wholesome Midwestern twang, practically sounds alien. The track is a bluesy torch song, the sort of thing Lynch was helping to produce for Julee Cruise a couple of decades ago, but… More »

David Lynch – “Star Dream Girl”

David Lynch has made a couple of movies, but he’s relatively new to the music game. Lynch’s sophomore album The Big Dream arrives next month, and we’ve already posted its one bonus track, the Lykke Li collab “I’m Waiting Here.” Lynch has referred to the album as “a hybrid, modernized form of low-down blues,” and… More »

David Lynch – “I’m Waiting Here” (Feat. Lykke Li) Video

Hey, remember last week, when we posted “I’m Waiting Here,” the Lykke Li-sung bonus track from David Lynch’s forthcoming album The Big Dream? Well, that song has a video now. Lynch didn’t direct it, which makes perfect sense, since it’s not like Lynch is one of the most iconic film directors of the past half-century… More »

David Lynch – “I’m Waiting Here” (Feat. Lykke Li)

Two years ago, the great discomfort-stoking and brain-breaking film director David Lynch took a break from enthusiastically endorsing transcendental meditation to release Crazy Clown Time, an LP of wriggling and dark electronic pop that served as Lynch’s first-ever album. And later this summer, he’ll follow that one up with a new album called The BigMore »

Ultraísta – “Strange Formula (David Lynch Remix)”

Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich has a new band called Ultraísta, and we’ve already heard a few of their songs, like “Smalltalk,” “Static Light,” and “Bad Insect.” And now auteur and relative music newcomer David Lynch has remixed their track “Strange Formula,” giving it a dark and heavy pulse. Listen below. More »

David Lynch – “Pinky’s Dream” (Feat. Karen O) (Trentemøller Remix)

Last year, David Lynch recruited Yeah Yeah Yeahs leader Karen O to sing on “Pinky’s Dream,” a song from his Crazy Clown Time album. Now Danish dance producer Trentemøller has remixed the track, turning it into an even more sinister synth throb. It’s not all that often that a dance remix reminds me of the… More »

David Lynch – “Noah’s Ark (Moby Remix)”

Moby’s David Lynch connections run deep. The man first came to prominence with “Go,” a 1990 rave banger that memorably sampled Angelo Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks theme, as well as that show’s dream-state giant intoning “It is happening again.” And now that David Lynch is trying his hand as an electronic pop artist, it just make… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

The week’s two best videos both revolve around sticky nightmare realities where people act in ways that are entirely socially acceptable, and yet it looks like it might be vaguely fun to be in both groups of people. Maybe Justice’s “Stress” video, or those original Die Antwoord clips, will turn out to be a bigger… More »

David Lynch – “Crazy Clown Time” Video (NSFW)

Last year, we chatted with David Lynch about his then-unnamed new record, a release that eventually emerged as Crazy Clown Time. Now, the title track comes complete with a jilting, NSFW (nudity) video. Lynch directs, obviously. Watch it below. More »

David Lynch Remixes Zola Jesus

Some combinations just make sense, and the intersection of David Lynch and Zola Jesus, two expert crafters of creepy beauty, is one of them. David Lynch, still relatively new to the music game, has supplied a relatively restrained and effectively pretty remix of Zola Jesus’s gooily gorgeous Conatus track “In Your Nature,” which will serve… More »

Hear A David Lynch DJ Mix

Long before he started to make music himself, David Lynch was using music to augment the uncanny, creeped-out atmosphere of his films; remember, for instance, Julee Cruise floating through Twin Peaks like a cloud, or Bill Pullman wildly squawking on a saxophone in Lost Highway. Lynch and musical collaborator “Big” Dean Hurley bring that same… More »

Stream David Lynch Crazy Clown Time

Well friends, after a trailer and a Karen collabO, a title track and a Progress Report, David Lynch essentially earned himself an Artist To Watch tag after 30+ years of being our finest American dream surrealist and a literal artist to watch. During that storied cinematic run, David was instrumental in the composition and curatio… More »
