Boomkat Product Review:
David Lynch and Sacred Bones’ relationship bears sublime, vintage fruit with ‘Three Demos’ by Julee Cruise, dating to her earliest recordings with Lynch & Badalamenti that would become her debut LP, ‘Floating Into The Night’, as used on ‘Blue Velvet’ and ‘Twin Peaks’
The recordings yield a rare peek behind the red curtain of Lynch and co in the mid-late ‘80s, spying the formation of what would become one of modern culture’s most indentifiable, influential and referenced pieces of music.
Taking in the original Floating (Demo), which opens with a whispered spoken word into - “ever since you kissed my eyes / I find myself alive / I’m floating”, along with the timeless lullaby of Falling (Demo) a.k.a. the Twin Peaks title sequence music, and the intimate whimsy of The World Spins (Demo), this is a precious slice of history not to be missed by any fans of Lynch or indeed smoky, ethereal ambient / jazz / soundtrack music of all stripes.
