Mixtape: David Lynch & ‘Big’ Dean Hurley
The musical collaborators celebrate their LP release by making us a mix
It’s been David Lynch season here at The Stool Pigeon, and pretty much everywhere else as streams of the album that the director made with his musical collaborator/engineer ‘Big’ Dean Hurley turn up online ahead of next week’s release. To celebrate, David and Dean made this mixtape exclusively for The Stool Pigeon and it’s the perfect compliment our cover story interview, which you can read in full here
The mix is a collection of songs that the two have been enjoying recently, beginning with new Texan blues star Gary Clark Jr’s ‘Bright Lights’ and Sonny Boy Williamson II’s ‘Bring It On Home’, which you’ll remember from the Mulholland Drive soundtrack. From there it’s onto a Kills take on a Jonathan Fire*Eater song, ‘The Search for Cherry Red’, some classic rock’n'roll, including the monster Monterey Pop performance of ‘Ball & Chain’ by Big Brother & The Holding Company and even a surprising spot of UK blubstep. They finish with a gem: This Mortal Coil’s ‘Song To The Siren’. Get stuck in.
