Crazy Clown Time, released in 2011, is not Lynch’s first foray into the musical realm. He worked extensively with composer Angelo Badalamenti to create the songs that in turn bred the unique atmosphere of Twin Peaks, Elephant Man, and others. This is, however, Lynch’s first solo album, and throughout it weaves the slow, spacey, ever-so-slightly unnerving lull that lead into each new twist in the revelation of Laura Palmer’s fate. Just as his more visual work, the album is deep and eerie yet disarmingly lush.
In this session, David Lynch discusses his craft and his new album and plays for us live.
