David Lynch, music guy

Davidlynch-articleInline Music has always played a crucial, perverse role in David Lynch’s films and TV projects — from Peter Ivers’ “In Heaven” in the director’s debut feature “Eraserhead” to the songs of Roy Orbison in “Blue Velvet” and “Mulholland Drive” to Julee Cruise’s “Falling” in “Twin Peaks.”

In today’s New York Times (registration required), blogger David Itzkoff interviews Lynch about “Dark Night of the Soul,” the long-delayed, just-released project that mates Lynch’s images with the music of Danger Mouse and Sparklehorse (the late musician Mark Linkous). The filmmaker is typically gnomic and sly in the Q&A session.

Below you’ll find a somewhat disturbing trailer for “Dark Night” that bears the distinctive Lynch touch. The Capitol album, released on Tuesday, features guest appearances by Iggy Pop, Black Francis, the Strokes’ Julian Casablancas, the Flaming Lips, James Mercer and the late Vic Chesnutt.
