So...after watching Twin Peaks: The Return; I was reminded of The Veils.

I was trying to find the song, they did on the show; and it certainly could have been...the excellent Larkspur.





Turns out...it was actually, Axolotl; from the new title, Total Depravity





BTW...if anyone is a Lynch fan, and watched TP:TR; feel free to start a thread!

Could of told you that. ;) Turns out this might be the big break the band needed after all these years. TP:TR has really made people aware of the band.

Doesn't surprise me; I like The War On Drugs. But it got 5 stars for sonics! Rare for a Rock/Pop title.

Mount Kimbie-Love What Survives
Sept. 2017

This is the third release from the duo. Really dig it. Some of my favorite tracks feature James Blake. Innovative electronic with a number of notable guests.

Gogol Bordello-Seekers and Finders
Aug. 2017

First new album in 4 years from the self-proclaimed Gypsy Punks. I've always felt they're mostly a live band but this is a solid release.

Warning: IMO, this is the best way to experience...the incredible track Bellbottoms. However...

...it happens to be, the opening 6 minutes from the quite fun...Baby Driver.

If you haven't seen the movie, and/or...don't want the opener spoiled; well...you've been warned  ;)



Seem like, the song...was just made for this scene? Wrong...Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), actually built the scene...around the song!  thumbsup
