sahuarofest First time i listen to it, gave me goosebumps all the way till the end. The mix of the instruments and vocals is superb. This is my favorite album of 2016.

Störung To be honest, what first caught my eye was the design (grabbed cass), then giving it a proper listening to one quiet evening I was floored! Their performance has such a new dramatic intensity it creates a rather enigmatic familiarity, which hit me hard. Like going to your creepy Aunt's house and realizing the danger you feared as a child is most certainly true and real now.
I love the album as a whole but the last 3 trax together KILL IT! Think I'll have to grab the vinyl too now. ;-) Favorite track: Josie's Past.

Dirk Funk The original soundtrack has a quaint cheesiness to it, that can't quite appeal to me outside of watching the show. Xiu Xiu are able to play that to their strength by mixing it with their usual intensity and varied instrumentation. The result is fittingly surreal, and one of my favourite records from 2016.

about

Australia’s Gallery of Modern Art commissioned Xiu Xiu to reinterpret the music from Twin Peaks for their David Lynch: Between Two Worlds exhibition. Since then, the band has performed select concerts all over the globe culminating in a proper studio album of the compositions.

"It’s difficult to overstate the cultural impact of Twin Peaks 25 years ago. Transferring his art-house cinema ethic to the small screen, David Lynch’s cerebral, surrealist murder mystery series towered like a desert skyscraper over the wastelands of mainstream US TV drama.

A large part of the series’ appeal lay in the hypnotic, spectral soundtrack that won a Grammy for its composer, Angelo Badalamenti. Invited earlier this year to reinterpret that music for a Lynch retrospective at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Californian avant-noise trio Xiu Xiu have now taking their work on a world tour." - The Guardian
