I have never watched Twin Peaks. I know. It’s about as terrible as the result of the COP15 meeting last week. But if anything is remotely scary, I can’t watch it. I have never even watched Candy Man, but just writing about it here means that I won’t be able to look into a mirror for the next 48 hours. I prefer My Little Pony kind of stories loaded with stars and rainbows and hearts and shades of pink!
So when I watched this video (which turned out to be an unofficial one) for the Mount Eerie track “Between Two Mysteries” I went “wow, beautiful footage to match a beautiful song, wonder what they are talking about out of sync with the lyrics”, and I read the youtube comments and discovered that it’s a Twin Peaks clip. I’m not really into TV series, but now I’m completely hooked on the idea of watching Twin Peaks if everything is as cool and mysterious as this clip. Somebody volunteer to hold my hand while watching? Woolen blankets and chocolate brownies included.
Mount Eerie is actually playing Loppen, Christiania April 2010. Apparently Mount Eerie is a guy called Phil Elverum. I think he sings a little like Owen Pallett and the sound reminds me of Peace Burial at Sea. But beware – the song for this video represents the calmer style of his. Most of his music is really noisy and loaded with emotions and definitely not for the weak-hearted.
