There’re two new videos today that I want to bring to your attention. The first is the official video for David Lynch‘s Crazy Clown Time, which comes off his album of the same name (review). The video is definitely NSFW as it features a woman with her breasts bared for a good majority of the video. That being said, it’s undeniably a Lynch video. With strange characters, bright colors and odd imagery, the music and visuals fit perfectly.
The second video comes from legendary doom metal band Saint Vitus. Coming off their upcoming album Lillie: F-65, you can check out the video for Let Them Fall below. This album will be their first release in 17 years. The video is directed by Michael Panduro who brought us the fantastically disgusting Ohrwurm video by Cephalic Carnage.
Sad news has come out today as legendary Blues/RnB singer Etta James has passed away due to complications from leukemia. She died with her husband and sons by her side. The singer was well known for such songs as The Wallflower, Something’s Got A Hold Of Me, and At Last. She was 73.
Since I don’t know much about Etta and her history, I’d recommend you read CNN’s article as it goes in depth into her life and career. But I personally have enjoyed listening to Etta for many years. Her body of work is astounding and the impact she had on the scene is undeniable. Rest well Miss Peaches, you will be missed.
David Lynch has released a short teaser of the recording sessions for his upcoming album Crazy Clown Time. Filmed just like one of his movies, the teaser is somewhat foreboding, thanks in part to the background music. Check it out after the jump and enjoy!
Crazy Clown Time will be released Nov. 8th in the US and Nov. 7th in the UK. You can pre-order the album on iTunes and Amazon.
If there was one major surprise announcement last year it was that legendary director David Lynch was going to be releasing an electronic album. After years of directing some of the most surreal and mind-boggling films of our time, Lynch decided to enter the music world with a collection of 14 songs on an album entitled Crazy Clown Time. We’ve got all the information on the album here.
After the jump, you can find a widget that allows you to hear the title track as well as download the song FOR FREE! I’m not really seeing anything wrong with this arrangement, so you should hop on it just as I did. Messily, followed by restraining orders.
Late last year, I wrote an article about legendary director David Lynch (Blue Velvet, Eraserhead, Twin Peaks) wanting to compose and release a music album. Originally, the album was supposed to be released in June, but due to situations arising, the release date was pushed. Well, full details for the album, entitled Crazy Clown Time, have emerged and it’s sounding very impressive!
The album will be released on November 8th via Sunday Best Recordings and will be available for purchase at retail outlets in both physical and digital formats, including a Collector’s Edition CD; iTunes exclusive with video; and a double LP set with bonus tracks.
Lynch states: “The love of experimenting with sound and music is what’s driving this boat. All of the songs on the album started as a jam. The jams eventually found a form and lyrics appeared.”
