Twin Peaks Original Score Getting First Vinyl Reissue in 25 Years

For the first time in 25 years, Angelo Badalamenti’s original score for David Lynch’s cult classic Twin Peaks is getting a vinyl reissue, and record stores all over the country are celebrating! The reissue comes with lyrics and liner notes from Badalamenti himself, a jacket paying homage to the tiling in the show’s Black Lodge designed by musician Sam Smith, and printed on “damn fine coffee” colored vinyl. The retail release date for the reissue is September 9th, and in celebratory anticipation, 20 record stores around the country are hosting Coffee & Cherry Pie Pre-Sales parties the evening of September 6th. Two of Austin’s record stores are taking part in the festivities: End of an Ear and Waterloo Records. Find a complete tracklist of the vinyl and details on the Coffee and Cherry Pie events on our website.

Slowdive Finish Recording First Album in Over 25 Years

English rock band Slowdive have finished their first album in over 20 years. The news was leaked by Drummer Simon Scott in a recent interview with Danish publication Undertoner. The group broke up back in 1995 after being dropped from their label, reformed in 2014, and in the mean time have gained a large and dedicated cult following. The group has been playing together regularly for the last couple of years, reveling in their live sound, which is the capture focus for their new album, which will be mixed this summer and released sometime in 2017. Slowdive’s regular touring and capturing of this live sound is almost antithetical to their last album, Pygmalion, which the group never actually toured when it was originally released back in 1995.
