Twin Peaks - Side A [10" Black Vinyl]
One of the more (un)surprising things about Twin Peaks is that they're at their best when they're being spontaneous. Sweet '17 Singles turned into one of their most inspired collection of songs, and it was recorded off the cuff in disparate sessions throughout a calendar year. The new EP, Side A, shares a similar feeling of spontaneity, written and partially recorded in quarantine throughout the first half of 2020.
It is, without question, one of the most potent distillations of what makes Twin Peaks such an unflappably great band: four songs, four different songwriters, four distinct sonic directions, that somehow manage to pack more punch when consumed together. There's the hi-wire rock ‘n' roll of Clay's opener "What's The Matter," the pensive, gauzy, sax-adorned comedown of Jack's "Whistle in the Wind (End of Everything)," the timeless, Harrison-esque guitar blissout of Colin's "Any More Than You Want," and the krautrock vision quest of Cadien's EP-closer "Above/Below." All the while, Connor's work behind the kit grounds each tune exactly where it needs to be on Side A's course.
