Stream: Twin Peaks’ new album Wild Onion

on July 28, 2014, 11:55am

CoSigned Chicago garage rockers Twin Peaks will release their sophomore album, Wild Onion, on August 5th via Grand Jury Music. In anticipation, it’s streaming in full over at Pitchfork.

The follow-up to last year’s Sunken spans 16 tracks and sees the four-piece expanding on their fuzzy, garage-rock sensibilities.

According to a press release, the 16-track album as a “modern day Nuggets“, a series of compilations featuring rare and obscure garage and psychedelic rock. “Except, it is Ty Segall, Black Lips and Thee Oh Sees curating instead of Lenny Kaye. Not literally, of course. But the spirit of those garage demigods is alive and well alongside subtle nods to everything from the Pixies and Tame Impala to the godfathers of guitar-guided pop music, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys.”

The press release further describes Wild Onion as a “record that reveals a level of maturity beyond all the amp-singeing solos, ragtag rhythms and dizzying voices of three distinct singer-songwriters. Unlike acts who let their egos get in the way, Cadien, Clay and Jack share the spotlight and play to one another’s strengths as Connor keeps things moving with a steady beat.”

Wild Onion is preceded by three singles, “Flavor”, “I Found A New Way”, and “Strawberry Smoothie”.

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing. Below, watch the video for “Flavor”:
