David Lynch: Bad The John Boy
On the heels of David Lynch’s hugely successful sophomore full length, The Big Dream, comes a very limited edition 12”, Bad The John Boy. While technically this track qualifies as a non-album or bonus track, this song was made around the same time as the track, We Rolled Together. Producer Dean Hurley elaborates, “In the bridge of that song, David was trying to do this thing where he was shuffling around lyric-based sentences: "Street the up, going girl little crazy..." Bad The John Boy has this shared idea...instead of 'John the Bad Boy,' it's Bad The John Boy..."good to up no" (up to no good. This track is more left of center than the songs on the full length, with vocals being processed straight into the spirit realm, sounding deeply non-human.
Complimenting this sci-fi dirge, on the B-side is a Venetian Snares remix of the album’s title track. Despite the fact that Canadian electronic musician Aaron Funk has been known for reinventing breakcore, in this remix he breathes completely new life into this song, turning it into something far from your typical dance remix.
David Lynch & Alan Splet: Eraserhead Original Soundtrack
Last summer, Sacred Bones released a deluxe limited edition version of the original soundtrack to David Lynch’s landmark 1977 film Eraserhead on vinyl. This reissue is no longer available, having sold out almost immediately. Now Sacred Bones is pleased to make this music available to the world once more, having unearthed copies of the soundtrack on CD. Originally released by Lynch himself, these CDs have not been available for over 5 years. This edition of the soundtrack even includes a ten-minute dance mix done by Lynch. To lay in the dark and listen to this dizzying succession of blissful noise is a different way to get “lost” in the vast space of then the visuals of the film itself. It's no stretch to consider this soundtrack an experimental, early industrial masterpiece. Eraserhead’s individual passion and personal tone shines through even in the thickest moments of fierce static, an audio undertaking that took Lynch and sound designer Alan Splet years to perfect.

David Lynch: The Big Dream
Legendary multimedia artist David Lynch returns this summer with the follow-up to Crazy Clown Time, his acclaimed 2011 solo debut. The new album sees Lynch returning to primary songwriting and performance duties, writing 11 out of the album?s 12 tracks. Also included in the lineup is Lynch?s signature take on the Bob Dylan folk classic ?The Ballad of Hollis Brown,? and a bonus track contribution featuring acclaimed Swedish musician Lykke Li. Describing his style of music as ?modern blues,? Lynch says, ?most of the songs start out as a type of blues jam and then we go sideways from there. What comes out is a hybrid, modernized form of low-down blues.? As you would expect from an accomplished film director, the songs are cinematic in scope. Lynch uses his reverb- drenched guitar and processed voice to summon primal moods and melodies that color a strange world populated by character archetypes familiar to fans of his films.
