Boomkat Product Review:
As previewed on Part 5 of Twin Peaks: The Return, this 7” features the nicotine and whiskey-fuelled swagger of Snake Eyes by Alex Zhang Hungtai (Dirty Beaches), Riley Lynch (sire of David), and Dean Hurley’s Trouble.
A-side they roll the dice on a killer noiR&B hustle lit up by blaring sax and chipping guitar from Hungtai and Lynch, driven by Hurley’s pendulous drums. It’s properly cocksure and sultry business for the Bang Bang Bar lizards.
Turn over and you’d be mistaken for thinking the trio were replaced by Bohren Under Der Club Of Gore on Mother’s Gone, plating to the flipside of the coin with a sense of sizzling menace comparable with that look in Agent Cooper’s eyes.
We can only cross our fingers in hope for a release of every track from the series…
