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.

    Kisses can be a lot of things. They can be sexy. They can sweet. They can be so awkward and tongue-y that you'll swear to yourself that you'll never kiss someone from Halifax ever again. Okay, that last one’s a bit personal. This year has been the year of kissing videos. There was the viral video of strangers kissing for the first time, which included pairings of two women, two men, a man and a cougar, and lots of nervous laughter. We all felt a little betrayed when we found out this wasn’t...

    Here at IX Daily, we love predicting trends almost as much as we love showcasing talented artists. That's why we sat down with up-and-coming Toronto based producer, Nightizm, to catch him on the rise. After blowing up Soundcloud with remixes like "Schoolboy Q & Kendrick Lamar's - Blessed" and "Lavender" (which racked up over a couple hundred thousand plays, no big) we knew we had to sit down with this talented producer. We met up at a quaint studio in the heart of Liberty Village to...

    Music videos have always been a source of branding and image for artists of all facets. It's the primary medium for fans to visually understand the music they're listening to. MTV was the first of its kind to introduce music videos to the world. Youtube followed through around 2005 and broke the television by giving everyone access to music videos on the internet (which literally turned MTV on its own head). Producers and directors shifted the way they made these videos, record labels starting...

    The spokesman of the drug trafficking flow- Pusha T has released some new visuals for his latest track "Lunch Money" recently leaving viewers nothing short of amazed and a bit confused. This new song, produced by Kanye West, is a new product of Kanye's new refined style of beat making which can explain the mixed reviews across the board as a lot of listeners are not specifically hip to his new sound as we all heard from "Yeezus".  Pusha T is obviously being his regular self and delivers...

    As the end of the year creeps up on us and the dawn of a new day approaches it’s time we look back on the events that occurred in 2014. The things that were said, the crazes we obsessed over and most importantly which Kardashian got the most hits on google [insert sarcasm here]. One way I like to reminisce is by remembering what hits I played the most depending on the context I was in. Ok not really but I needed an idea for an article and this just came to me so just fucking deal with it ok?...
