Artist Portraits From Firefly 2015 Thursday & Friday

Since it launched in 2012, Firefly is still a new kid on the festival block, relatively speaking. But that youth gives Firefly the cool power of highlighting and magnifying artists that might otherwise still be flying under the radar. Mallory Turner took portraits of some of these artists while they hung around between sets o… More »

The 6 Best Moments Of Firefly 2015 Thursday & Friday

There’s a great funny-because-it’s-true joke in Wayne’s World that captures how the rest of the U.S. views Delaware. Wayne finds himself in front of a green screen in his show’s fancy new studio, and upon being “magically whisked away” to the state, he doesn’t know what to say past, “Hi, I’m in Delaware.” What do… More »

Twin Peaks – “Got Your Money” (Stereogum Premiere)

If you’ve been hoping to hear more of Twin Peaks’ ragtag garage pop since devouring last year’s debut, Wild Onion, you’re in luck. The Chicago outfit has a freshly pressed orange vinyl — featuring their awesomely idiosyncratic “In The Morning (In The Evening)” — ready for Record Store Day next weekend. The B-side of that… More »

Karen O, Sky Ferreira, Duran Duran, And A Dozen More Artists Paid Tribute To David Lynch (And Die Antwoord Heckled The Whole Time)

Amongst the shabby, shuttered vaudeville theaters that line Broadway in Los Angeles, the Theatre at Ace Hotel burns bright. A line stretched from the theater doors all the way down the street, with fans dressed to the nines waiting to get in. The event? The Music Of David Lynch, a concert at which a galaxy… More »

Twin Peaks Release Wild Onion Demos As Free Album Mind Frames

We named Twin Peaks a Band To Watch last summer in conjunction with the release of their debut LP, Wild Onion. The Chicago-based band just put out the album’s demos as a free download titled Mind Frames, calling it, “A glimpse into the bedroom feels of each songwriter and hopefully a treat for everyone.” You… More »

Twin Peaks – “In The Morning (In The Evening)”

Chicago-based Band To Watch Twin Peaks will be releasing a new 7″ to follow up last year’s full-length, Wild Onion. “In The Morning (In The Evening)” is a brand new track, and the flip-side of the vinyl will feature an older song, “Got Your Money.” Twin Peaks recorded this track directly to 2″ tape using… More »

Twin Peaks – “Mind Frame” Video

Chicago-based Band To Watch Twin Peaks evoke the past in their new video for “Mind Frame.” The lazy garage rock track is accompanied by visuals the band riding on motorbikes behind a green screen filled with hazily retro backdrops, never quite hitting the road or getting in sync with their pretend surroundings. Watch below. More »

CMJ: Twin Peaks, Happyness, Nai Harvest @ Rough Trade, Brooklyn 10/23/14

Yesterday was a disgusting day in New York, and this is coming from someone whose favorite season is winter: wet coldness due to the obnoxiously persistent rain, and a particularly bone-cutting kind of wind (especially if you were, like me, near the East River). Given that, spending the day indoors, at an afternoon showcase at… More »

Twin Peaks – “Making Breakfast” Video

As a rule, the Chicago garage rockers Twin Peaks (who should really consider changing their name now that the real Twin Peaks is coming back) make really good music videos. Their clips for “Flavor” and “I Found A New Way” are both dumb, sloppy fun, and even something as minimal as their new “Making Breakfast”… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

This week’s big videos were Iggy Azalea’s take on Kill Bill and Ariana Grande’s take on (I guess) Barbarella, and they were both straight trash. You can make a good pop video by making a pastiche of a particular movie; 2Pac doing Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome springs immediately to mind. But that’s not enough. The… More »

Twin Peaks – “I Found A New Way” Video

Earlier this week, we featured the young Chicago garage-rock band Twin Peaks in our Band To Watch series, and today they’ve dropped a video for their song “I Found a New Way,” which is featured on their new album Wild Onion (which also came out this week). Directed by Ryan Ohm, the clip is reportedly… More »

Band To Watch: Twin Peaks

Rock ‘n’ roll: dead? Nah dawg! Twin Peaks are carrying that torch. The youthful Chicago garage band puts the lie to other popular notions too, such as the one where music-loving teenagers only make laptop music these days, or the one where club shows are the next step after house shows (and not the other… More »

Twin Peaks – “Strawberry Smoothie”

Twin Peaks are putting out a new album next month, featuring the great title Wild Onion. We’ve already heard one song, “Flavor,” and now they have another one to share. “Strawberry Smoothie” packs so much great sound into less than two and a half minutes, from satisfying guitar riffs, some “woo woos,” and a good… More »

Artist Portraits From Pitchfork Festival 2014

This past weekend, Pitchfork Festival went down in Chicago, and it included a great deal of excellent acts. We sent our photographer Max Herman to capture some behind-the-scenes portraits of artists around the festival. Above you’ll find photos of DIIV, Deafheaven, Giorgio Moroder, and more. More »

Twin Peaks – “I Found A New Way” (Stereogum Premiere)

Youthful Chicago rockers Twin Peaks are nearing the release of their new album Wild Onion, and today they’ve shared another great song from the project. It’s called “I Found A New Way,” but it’s more of a masterful demonstration of old ways — specifically the raucous barroom rock of early ’70s Stones, the punchy demeanor… More »

The 5 Best Videos Of The Week

When a musician puts together a moving tribute to her deceased bandmate, giving fitting visual accompaniment to the last thing that bandmate ever recorded, that video really should be #1 on this list. Most weeks, it would be. But this week, that video went up against the form’s reigning innovator, who’s put together a stunning… More »

Twin Peaks – “Flavor” Video

There are few songs more inherently “summer” than Twin Peaks’ new “Flavor,” released in May, on the cusp of the sunny season. Cheerful, major-key progressions soundtrack that first school’s-out pool party or a road trip taken with your best pals. The top-down, muggy-breeze feeling translates quite literally into this nostalgically grainy video, a celebration of… More »
