Stream Xiu Xiu Plays The Music Of Twin Peaks

It would be pretty funny if confrontational art-poppers Xiu Xiu had made an album-length tribute to the Chicago garage-rock band Twin Peaks. But no: Xiu Xiu’s new album, as you’ve probably guessed, actually salutes David Lynch’s cultishly beloved, soon-to-be-revived TV series. The band made the album on commission, for Australia’s Gallery Of Modern Art, which made it a part of a Lynch exhibit. The album includes the band’s version of piece of composer Angelo Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks score, as well as a couple of songs that dream-popper Julee Cruise sang on the show. We’ve posted their version of “Into The Night,” and now you can stream the full album below, via the Twin Peaks fan site Welcome To Twin Peaks.

Plays The Music Of Twin Peaks is out 4/16 via Polyvinyl in North America and Bella Union in Europe.
