Various Artists – Twin Peaks (Music from the Limited Event Series)

Sound plays an undeniably crucial role in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks: The Return. It’s kind of his thing. Going back as far as 1977, which saw the release of Lynch’s first feature, Eraserhead, you can see the careful way he used what would become his signature creeping atmospheric hum, sizzle, and hiss to build a mood that would be terrifying regardless of what’s going on in the shot. For Lynch’s earlier works, including the original two seasons of Twin Peaks (1990 – 1991), he focused primarily on instrumental numbers by long-time collaborator Angelo Badalamenti, with the occasional lyrical song thrown in by artists like Julee Cruise, Lynch himself, or a licensed favorite from the ’50s and ’60s.
