David Lynch — Good Day Today/I Know


Enjoyable electronic tunes from David Lynch (yes, that one)

Rod Lott January 24th, 2011

Modern cinema's reigning mad genius — David Lynch, of course — tries his hand at electronic music with a two-song EP entirely written, performed, produced and vocalized by the man himself.

While it's not out of the question one of its cuts may become a dance club fixture, the disc is best experienced — and an experience it is — via headphones.

"Good Day Today" is an optimistic, up-tempo number beget from an initial burst of chaotic static. With lyrics referencing angels, the sweetened-past-recognition voice of Lynch spreads cheer, albeit in only the way he can; a recurring synth note could come straight outta "Twin Peaks." And what's the sudden burst of machine gun?

"I Know" is like the mirror image of "Good Day Today": slow, smoky, sinister, even a little disturbing. But there's a groove there, however dingy, not unlike the work of Tom Waits or Nick Cave.

Although there are only two songs, the EP contains 10 tracks; the rest is comprised of a radio edit for "Good Day Today" and several remixes for both tunes. From the bunch, Underworld's is certainly, unsurprisingly the shiniest of all. Boyz Noize, fuzzy; Diskjokke, full of handclaps and Jan Hammer homages; Sasha, foreboding; Skream, stripped-down; Ratcliffe, rubbery to the point of frustrating; and Jon Hopkins, a nice rendering of "I Know" that bests the original. —Rod Lott
