DAVID LYNCH / Crazy Clown Time [2011]

Film director David Lynch has always been closely involved with the music in his films and has even dabbled in songwriting himself, so it never came as much of a surprise when he announced he would release his own solo album.
Crazy Clown Time is a collection of late night noirish slowdance pieces that conjure up disorienting images of cigarette smoke, unruly sex and flickering lights. It's repetitive dirty bluesy dance music painted over with vocals disguised in heavy FX yet still recognizably Lynch.
His music doesn't particularly beg for your undivided attention but more or less allows you to get lost in an almost transcendental state. It's good but not great. Basically everything I expected it to be and I'm pleased with just that.
