The Music of Twin Peaks: The Return: The Veils (and ZZ Top)

 

[ SPOILERS AHEAD ]

David Lynch’s love for music is as powerful as a green-gloved fist, and it’s reflected in the soundtrack for Showtime’s Twin Peaks: The Return. Most of the episodes end with a band performing at the Bang Bang Bar aka The Roadhouse, the local bar in the city of Twin Peaks.

In an ongoing weekly series of exclusive interviews, KEXP’s resident Twin Peaks expert DJ Morgan will chat with the show’s music director Dean Hurley. Hurley has collaborated extensively with David Lynch on sound design and music, and since 2005, has operated Asymmetrical Studio, Lynch’s recording studio and film dubbing facility located in the Hollywood Hills. Tune in every Monday at 8:00 AM PT to The Morning Show on KEXP, as Morgan and John Richards air excerpts from her chats with Hurley. View previous chats in the series here on the KEXP Blog.


In tonight’s chat with Dean, he reveals more surprises about David Lynch’s taste in music (not only does he love Jewel, but ZZ Top?), and tells KEXP how The Veils got involved in the show. Keen-eyed fans spotted frontman Finn Andrews in the cast list back in 2016, and Hurley has a production credit on the band’s most recent full-length, Total Depravity, out last year on Nettwerk Records. (El-P of Run the Jewels co-produced the album, and also appears on tonight’s track “Axolotl.”) Hear the story of how Lynch first reacted to tonight’s song below:

Twin Peaks: The Return airs every Sunday night at 9:00 PM ET/PT on Showtime.

On September 8th, Rhino will release two soundtrack collections: Twin Peaks (Music From the Limited Event Series) featuring performances from The Roadhouse and Twin Peaks (Limited Event Series Original Soundtrack) featuring the score by composer Angelo Badalamenti.
