Description

"The love of experimenting with sound and music is what's driving this boat," explained the self-taught 'non-musician'. "All of the songs on the album started as a jam. The jams eventually found a form and lyrics appeared." Lynch recorded Crazy Clown Time over several months at his own Asymmetrical Studio with engineer Dean Hurley, who contributes guitar and drums to several songs. The recording process, Lynch recalls, was filled with happy creative accidents. "There were so many accidents; this album should be in the hospital." The result is a collection of dark songs Lynch has described as "modern blues." Filled with foreboding soundscapes, hypnotic rhythms and enigmatic lyrics, Crazy Clown Time will surely resonate with fans of Lynch's films, but should also appeal to listeners who appreciate gloriously daring and quirky pop music. The tracks released last year hint at the album's range. The driving beat of "Good Day Today" also fuels "Stone's Gone Up," "Noah's Arc" and "Strange and Unproductive Thinking," while the menacing shuffle of "I Know" reverberates through "So Glad," "Football Game" and "Pinky's Dream," which features guest vocalist Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Lynch's passion for music has always figured prominently into his filmmaking, starting with his feature debut Eraserhead (1977) which included "In Heaven," a song he wrote with Peter Ivers and continuing through to his most recent work, Inland Empire (2006) which featured several tracks penned by Lynch. Four years ago, motivated by his growing musical ambitions, Lynch became the eponymous creator of the David Lynch Music Company. Then, in 2010, he transformed his Web site (www.davidlynch.com) into an immersive digital archive the offers material released by David Lynch Music Company since its launch, plus unreleased singles, experiments and instrumentals created by Lynch and collaborators throughout the years.
