Music Millennium

2016 release. Plays The Music Of Twin Peaks is an album by American experimental band Xiu Xiu. Composed of cover versions of the music from the Twin Peaks soundtrack, it was initially released exclusively as a Record Store vinyl-only release. 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 it's composer, Angelo Badalamenti." - The Guardian
