    This Just In: Floating Into The Night

    posted by Emile

    I recently (finally) made it through the first season of Twin Peaks. It was my third attempt and I swore I wouldn’t try again if I couldn’t stay awake this time. No, it’s not that I find Twin Peaks bad or boring, rather, the music is so relaxing that it puts me to sleep. And as a part-time insomniac, I’ll take sleep when I get it. “What does your insomnia have to do with records?” you ask. Well, PLAIN Recordings just reissued Floating Into The Night, the debut album by Julee Cruise, also known as the singer in the bar on Twin Peaks. The album was produced by Angelo Badalamenti & David Lynch, and features some of the iconic music used in the series and some of Lynch’s other film work. If you’re familiar with all of these aforementioned names (it’s safe to assume you are, right?), you’re probably excited about this record. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, drink a damn fine cup of coffee and take a listen.

    Julee Cruise – Floating Into The Night LP:
    Listen/Watch: “Falling”
    Floating Into the Night is the 1989 debut album by vocalist Julee Cruise featuring songs written and produced by composer Angelo Badalamenti and film director David Lynch. The songs ‘Falling’ and ‘Rockin’ Back Inside My Heart’ were both featured in Lynch’s cult television series Twin Peaks, and ‘Into the Night,’ ‘The Nightingale,’ and ‘The World Spins’ also appeared in the show. The instrumental version of ‘Falling’ was the theme song for Twin Peaks while the album as a whole is almost an unofficial soundtrack to the series. The track ‘Mysteries of Love’ was prominently featured in Lynch’s classic film Blue Velvet. Cruise’s dreamy, light vocals match perfectly with the music and lyrics to make this album sound like it is unattached to any era. Reissued on 180-gram vinyl.” -Forced Exposure

    This Just In: Turning

    posted by Emile

    While I try hard not to feature any non-vinyl titles besides the occasional cassette, I’m making an exception for the new Antony & The Johnsons DVD/CD release, Turning. Seems like people either completely love Antony’s music, or they find it totally unlistenable – I’ve yet to meet anyone who thinks it’s “just OK.” While this new release, a concert documentary of sorts, isn’t going to convert non-believers, it’s a strong reinforcement for die-hards of just how moving this music is. Combined with visuals from Charles Atlas and portraits referencing feminine identity, if Antony’s work didn’t make you cry before, it will now. You might want to watch/listen alone for the first time, just in case…

    Antony & The Johnsons – Turning CD+DVD
    Watch: Turning Preview

    “TURNING – A concert film documentary captured during the critically acclaimed tour of Europe by Antony and the Johnsons and Charles Atlas during the fall of 2006, it explores the heart and experience of that series of performances. Through it’s synthesis of Antony’s songs and unfurling video portraiture of the 13 beauties who performed on stage, TURNING creates an intimate and cinematic experience exploring themes of identity, transcendence and the revelation of essence.

    Also included in the deluxe package is the full TURNING concert recorded live at The Barbican, London, Nov. 2006 and contains songs across the first three Antony and the Johnsons’ full length albums along with bonus tracks never before released songs – “Whose are These” and “Tears Tears Tears”. The classic lineup of Antony, Maxim Moston, Rob Moose, Julia Kent, Parker Kindred, Jeff Langston and Thomas Bartlett can be heard on these recordings as Charles Atlas’ projected portraits of the girls light up the stage from behind the band for the duration of the concert.

    ‘I would qualify TURNING as the most significant work of my career. We spent 7 years producing the film and have spent another year and a half showing the film at select festivals. In the last 6 years especially, the presence and recognition and embrace of transgendered people and the feminist cause has risen monumentally in popular culture around the world. I am so proud that we planted one of the seeds that would come to this fruition with our tour of TURNING in 2006, traveling with 13 women, many of whom were transsexual, and presenting a radiant exploration of identify and spiritual aesthetics. We shared our most private vision of modern feminine beauty with the world, bringing it from the late night stages of NYC to highly regarded theaters in Europe.'” -Secretly Canadian
