David Lynch: Crazy Clown Time -- Nov 8th (Debut Album feat. Karen O)


from pitchfork:
We've been hearing about it for a long time, and now it's finally here: David Lynch's solo album of electronic pop. Here's the first thing you need to know about this album: It's called Crazy Clown Time. And here's the second thing: It features guest vocals from Yeah Yeah Yeahs leader Karen O on a song called "Pinky's Dream". Those are two very good reasons to get excited.

Crazy Clown Time arrives November 8 from Sunday Best Recordings. (In the U.S., it will be co-released by PIAS America.) Lynch wrote, produced, and performed the entire thing with help from engineer Dean Hurley, who also plays guitar and drums on several songs.

Crazy Clown Time:

01 Pinky's Dream
02 Good Day Today
03 So Glad
04 Noah's Ark
05 Football Game
06 I Know
07 Strange and Unproductive Thinking
08 The Night Bell With Lightning
09 Stone's Gone Up
10 Crazy Clown Time
11 These Are My Friends
12 Speed Roadster
13 Movin' On
14 She Rise Up

I really want to like this, I just have a feeling that I'm not going to. I'm hoping it's more dark-ambient than electronic-pop like "Good Day Today."

When I think of a "David Lynch album" I think of something close to the Eraserhead soundtrack; which would be awesome. I will hold my judgement 'til after I hear more songs from the album.

The two tracks I've already heard are... interesting. I know it's partially because of the title, but I'm getting a Crispin Glover vibe from his material.

I don't think it's quite fair to compare a David Lynch album with the music composed for these films. You can't expect Lynch to be an Angelo Badalamenti.

Lynch's BLUE BOB album with John Neff was great. I am really looking forward to this.

I wonder if you play the vinyl backwards if Inland Empire is explained?

Actually, the Lost Highway soundtrack was one of the best ever, IMO.

David Lynch has impeccable musical taste - I'm sure it will be terrific.

Agreed. Won't be for everyone but I'm sure it will be thoroughly enjoyable.

I stumbled across this on Youtube. Was unaware of Lynch's music. Fantastic. Certainly not for everyone. But I love this stuff.

Looks like you people talked about it pre-release, but not much afterwards.

And from his previous album...

from pitchfork:



David Lynch Announces New Album The Big Dream, Shares Track Featuring Lykke Li

Legendary director and musician David Lynch is readying his second solo LP following 2011's Crazy Clown Time. The album is called The Big Dream, and it's out July 15 in Europe via Sunday Best and July 16 in the U.S. via Sacred Bones. If you're a Spotify user, you can stream a bonus cut from the album, "I'm Waiting Here" featuring Lykke Li, above.

The Big Dream features 11 original songs, plus a cover of Bob Dylan's "The Ballad of Hollis Brown". In a press release, Lynch described the music of the album as "modern blues" and said, "Most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and then we go sideways from there. What comes out is a hybrid, modernized form of low-down blues."

The vinyl edition of the album will come with a bonus 7", which will feature the Lykke Li track on the A-side and an etching hand-inscribed by Lynch on the B-side. The digital version will contain the Lykke Li track as well. Lynch said of Lykke Li in a press release, "She brought her own style to this song, which has a doo-wop sort of thing going on, but in a way it’s far-removed from the 50s."

I knew that cryptic video Lynch posted to Vine had to mean something.

Great news! I loved Crazy Clown Time wayyy more than I expected to.

ETA: I just pre-ordered this off the Sacred Bones website, and it came with an instant download of the bonus track. Around $18 shipped.
