Saint Sister obviously knows the way to my heart. Not only have they named their new single Twin Peaks (guess who loves that show?), but the Irish duo have more than enchanted me with their dreamy wistful, snowy ethereal aria, too. Part Beach House-like dream pop, part Daughter like atmospheric folktronica, Twin Peaks is a glacial beauty and a soft, sweet, celtic harp ensconced taste from the pair’s forthcoming debut album. Saint Sister will be on the road for much of the rest of the year as they tour  North America, Europe, Ireland, the UK, and Australia. Debut album Shape of Silence is due out later this year. Find out more about their tour from their website, here.

On Sunday night, Twin Peaks made its long awaited return to television, and it’s been as wonderfully twisted and befuddling a ride as expected, if not even more so than its first two seasons now that Lynch seems to have free reign to do as he pleases on the Showtime presented series. Long before its premiere, we learned that Johnny Jewel of the Chromatics would be soundtracking some of the series. In fact, he’s already released surprise album Windswept the other day, which includes plenty of cuts to be used on the series. Chromatics also closed out Sunday’s two part premiere with a beautiful performance of this gauzy swirling dream pop beauty, Shadow. It was a spectacular scene at the iconic Bang Bang Bar, which we’ve associated with legendary chanteuse Julee Cruise for the past 26 years. Johnny Jewel immediately dropped this video after that premiere. The gorgeous tribute to both David Lynch’s Blue Velvet and Julee Cruise is pure perfection. Shadow will be on the Chromatics’ long awaited and much delayed album Dear Tommy. Head over to Italians Do It Better to purchase Windswept digitally, or Shadows on 12″, here.

Breaking protocol again by hopping on for another unplanned must share. As someone who’s a huge fan of both David Lynch’s bizarrely twisted Twin Peaks world and red hot Netflix series Stranger Things (in part due to their retro synthcore soundtracks), this surprise mashup of Twin Peaks’ Laura Palmer Theme with Stranger Things’ SURVIVE crafted theme is more than I could wish for. Wistful yet dark, tenderly melancholic yet eerily menacing… ahhh… My day is made. I’m listening to this all day long. Or, I would, if I could. Thank you, Seattle band Prom Queen, for creating Stranger Peaks.

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, pancakes… what’s not to love? But guess what? Breakfast is also a fantastic new band from Los Angeles. Not only do they have the most awesome name ever, the quartet’s debut song Diane is a dreamy, synthy delight. On the surface, I’m reminded of heart warming synth acts like Electric Youth and Young Summer, but Diane carries a dark, off kilter edge that’s deliciously haunting. It all makes sense if you’re familiar with David Lynch’s cult television show Twin Peaks. Oddly enough, I JUST finished marathon watching both seasons of the show a couple weeks ago, so the diner that inspired this song is very much fresh in my mind. Diane captures it all to perfection, with its Lynchian “quirky odd darkness hidden underneath sweet swirly warmth” vibe.

Montreal’s Majical Cloudz, aka Devon Welsh, released this excellent black and white video clip for his dreamy, beautiful song Childhood’s End. The clip stars Welsh’s father, Kenneth Welsh, whom some may recognize as an actor from mysterious David Lynch television series Twin Peaks. Both the moody song and the somber video are absolutely mesmerizing. The stark ballad is off of coming album Impersonator, out on May 21 off Matador.

By now, most of you have probably heard Lana Del Rey’s lovely cover of Blue Velvet and seen the H&M television advertisement of her crooning the tune with a ton of endless David Lynch-ian symbolism and imagery going on. I’ve even noticed it showing on TV already! Awesomeness. I’m a huge fan of some of David Lynch’s dark, wacky work, so the clip was right up my alley. Lynch? LDR? YES, PLEASE! I’ve noticed a lot of other artists and friends have been huge on the clip. Today, Penguin Prison released a sweet remix of the cover which has the addition of some synthlines and sultry beats. The H&M clip and OG cover below. If you’re at all a Lynch fan or familiar with his work, you’d recognize some of his signature themes in the wonderful ad. Shoot, now I’m fiending for some Lynch… Anyone up for watching some Blue Velvet, Twin Peaks, Mulholland Dr, etc?
