David Lynch doesn’t want you to call him a musician. He’s a renowned filmmaker and self-taught improviser on electric guitar, a slasher and basher of strange riffs he can never quite repeat again. It’s the sound at the core of his new album, The Big Dream, which is released on Tuesday. It pairs spooky noir tones and echoes of early rock & roll with songs of heartache and tense soundscapes.
"I love to think of the electric guitar like a 1950s chopped and lowered flat-black muscle car, super-fast with a low roar on the exhaust," Lynch tells us. "It’s the sound of power. That’s what I’m dreaming of. The electric guitar can be like an engine, but it can purr in a beautiful way." Read our full interview with David Lynch where he talks his new LP and other projects.
