The Joup Friday Album: Twin Peaks Season 2 OST

00 Twin Peaks Season Two (And More)At 12:41 AM LA time I’m really pushing the definition of the “Friday Album” but what the hell, Friday is a day meant to be lived long into the wee hours, so here’s a great way to wind into the small hours…

The Joup Friday Album: Julee Cruise – Floating into the Night

Floating into the NightIf there’s an album title more evocative of Twin Peaks – I mean other than the soundtracks that bear the town’s name – I’ve not found it. Especially I feel a strong thread between this album and the second half of the original pilot episode of the show, where half of the teenage cast runs around in the night with various secretive agendas, starting fights, burying secrets and forgetting to put air in their sister’s bicycle tires. I was a teenager myself when I saw that and first experienced Cruise’s music through David Lynch’s lens, and it shaped me in a way that a lot of the times I’m out in the night with a debaucherous agenda at hand -with admittedly is not very often anymore – echoes of this album provide my interior soundtrack.

For some of you who may be unfamiliar with Bohren & Der Club of Gore I know what you think this record is going to sound like and I can assure you that you could not be more wrong. So seriously, don’t skip this! When the sun goes down fire up a gin martini and find a place where you can settle in to a late night accessible mind frame uninterrupted for a while, because this is the perfect vibe for a Friday night. In fact, I don’t know why I’m posting this as early in the day as I am, but I guess this way you’ll at least get a heads up for this evening. Because when I say that, to me, there is a lot of music I consider day time music and a lot I consider night time music I should also clarify that some music can be both. However Sunset Mission – and Bohren in general – is pretty specifically night time music.
