“For the past decade, Los Angeles-based film composer Dean Hurley has been David Lynch’s right-hand-man for all things sound-related. He did the music supervision and sound mixing for Inland Empire as well as producing and co-writing some of the auteur’s own studio albums, like 2011’s Crazy Clown Time, 2013’s The Big Dream, and 2014’s the Air Is On Fire. To tide you over for Twin Peaks‘s long-awaited return to network television this year, we recommend checking out his very romantic, sample-delic new solo album, Days of Thunder & Rain, which was constructed almost entirely from old soul samples, and takes its name from Hans Zimmer’s synthy score for ’90s Nascar thriller Days of Thunder. He’s released it for free download, along with the above short film, directed by Nicholas Wurz and William Renton, commissioned by Virginia-based film studio Mondial, and co-starring a bunch of creepy mannequins.” (via Emilie Friedlander, The Fader)

“When Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon saw Norway’s Highasakite perform at the 2012 Oya Festival in Oslo, he fell in love. Soon the two bands were touring together. Now the only band I know that tours with a flugabone has taken one of Vernon’s songs and made it even more majestic than the original.” (via All Songs Considered)
