October 20th, 2011 : Cause & Effect : David Lynch

I think few people could have expected that the Eagle Scout gone film director of such mind melters like Eraserhead would go on to influence a whole new generation of music makers. Romantic, heartbreaking, unnerving  sexy, and mysterious; Lynch along with his most famous of musical collaborators Angelo Badalamenti are masters of creating a mood that can destroying your soul in way that is both haunting and beautiful. I don't know how anyone can be so masterful at marrying hope to sadness but they do it - no less adding layers of sexual tension and horror.

Follow me into the dark woods from 7PM to 9PM tonight on WRIR and don't forget your flashlight. You are going to need it. I will not only showcase the shadowy and seductive music from David's films and TV show Twin Peaks but I will also play lots of examples of his own music, including brand new music from his upcoming record Crazy Clown Time that will be released November 8th via Sundays Best Recordings. And yes, there are TONS of musicians making music that is worthy of a Lynch film and I will play many of those groups tonight as well.

UPDATE:    Download the whole show here.               The tracklisting is here.
