David Lynch Drops His Big Dream

David Lynch Drops His Big Dream

I guess it shouldn't be a surprise that "The Big Dream" has the title that it does, coming from the Master of Dreams himself, Mr. David Lynch. So YES let's just put it out there right now that I am/was/will always be a big fan of Lynch, as pretentious and stupidly arty as he may seem to some. I don't really need things to make sense, and I appreciate things that don't. Given that, I have a high tolerance for watching mutated, sperm-like mutant babies float through outer space.

Thankfully for you, this isn't that. It isn't even about that. It's about music. It's true that the summer season is upon us, and everyone's bustin' out the happy-go-lucky jams and perhaps "The Big Dream" – with it’s release date of July 16th - will be far from giving us tracks that fall into that categorization... BUT, when the evening creeps in and the leaves begin to bitterly flutter to the ground and you're blowing fog-enhanced smoke-rings under a streetlamp - truly what could be more appropriate.

BigDream

"The Big Dream" is Lynch's follow up to 2011's "Crazy Clown Time", an admittedly bizarro but well received album that lyrically weaved tales revolving around stalking women, Alan Watts-ish analyzing of destructive thought patterns, and of course, the titular Crazy Clown Time, which to be perfectly honest I'm not entirely sure how to explain. I'll just put it right here:

For those of you who are reluctant to listen to his admittedly off-putting voice, I understand. However, much like the people who have but one thing to say about Bob Dylan ("ugh, he's a HORRIBLE singer!"), it doesn't matter. It could hardly be denied that the most important works of art are often not aesthetically pleasing. You're not going to drive around with the windows rolled down, licking a popsicle and crankin' "Chimes of Freedom". In much the same way, Lynch's music requires something of you - but if you give it, you will be rewarded. You never know - on some long late-night walk home you might even NEED it. Appropriately enough, "The Big Dream" will feature a Bob Dylan cover, as well as a bonus track with Lykke Li.

Musically it's about as weird as white-guy-blues can get, and it all gives a sort of vague, temporary impression of what it might be like to listen in to someone else's head. Whether David Lynch's head is something you'd want to get into or not is another matter, but you can be rest assured that I can, will, and already do. As often as possible.

              "These tracks were born out of experimenting with a bit of self-imposed restraints. Afterlife was a particular sound palette I wanted to stick to and see what would come of it. 1 4 me was trying to challenge myself to keep an arrangement dead simple. They came out of a period that was actually really prolific for me and hope to share more soon, but these two stuck together with a playful spirit. Some fun for the end of summer, as we tread into winter" -...

    Harassment nonprofit Hollaback! took to the streets of New York with a hidden camera to follow this woman walking around in busy streets. What we get to see is the amount of verbal harassment and catcalling she had to endure during that period of time. Unfortunately this is just a mere example compared to the actual amount of verbal harassment a girl, or someone who is part of the LGBTQ community endures on a daily basis.   We can all agree that it’s uncomfortable...

    With the dust finally starting to settle after penning a deal with Flux Pavillion's Circus Records, Bristol dubstep duo Diskord unleash the first official fruits of their their labour for their new label home after the free download special "Go Hard". Blurring the lines between trap and dubstep, "Tell Me Why" is a militant stomper of high pitched vocal samples, machine gun hats and gnarly synth patches. For their debut effort on Circus, this is guaranteed to shake speaker stacks and signal the...

    I feel like men have the upper hand when it comes to halloween costume ideas. If you want to dress like Darth Vader, you totally can. Which means you won't have to go to 15 different stores before finding one that doesn't reveal your labia.  There are so many kick-ass ideas floating around the internet but a lot of the time you just don't feel like making the effort and I feel you because I'm probably lazier than you are.  I decided to browse said internets to find the male costume...

    Anime fans will either rejoice or cry on this one, but Scarlett Johansson is rumored to star in the upcoming Hollywood remake of Ghost in the Shell.   While typically, Scarlett Johansson’s badassery would be well suited to such a role, due to her past in Avengers, I can’t help but anticipate a poorly made remake of this classic film. For those who don’t know it, Ghost in the Shell is set in the year 2029, where the line between humans and machines has become increasingly blurry....

    Nobody deserves to be shamed for expressing their sexuality on Halloween, but these days the annoying, unoriginal 'slutty' Halloween costume girl is a trope that doesn't seem to be going away. I'm over it. Source I mean, Halloween was always that one day a year where you can flaunt your shit and court sexual attention on yourself without discomfort or care, but it's time ya'll reverted from buying oversexualized store-level crap. This Halloween, put away that $69 nurse costume and...
