Listen: David Lynch's Ill-Advised Foray Into Electronic Music

So when he's not making movies, selling coffee or giving weather reports, David Lynch likes to make music. He's contributed bits and pieces to the scores for "Wild at Heart," "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me" and "Mulholland Drive," penned a couple of decent songs for "Inland Empire" and even dropped a straight up rock record (well, as "straight up" as Lynch gets) called BlueBob. However, his latest release is an electronic/"modern blues" single entitled "Good Day Today." And it's not very good.

So when he's not making movies, selling coffee or giving weather reports, David Lynch likes to make music. He's contributed bits and pieces to the scores for "Wild at Heart," "Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me" and "Mulholland Drive," penned a couple of decent songs for "Inland Empire" and even dropped a straight up rock record (well, as "straight up" as Lynch gets) called BlueBob. However, his latest release is an electronic/"modern blues" single entitled "Good Day Today." And it's not very good.

The A-side is a pulsating electronic number that finds Lynch repeating the heavily vocoder-ed title of the song, over a pulsating upbeat and thoroughly dull persistent beat. If you ever wondered what Lynch might sound like talking over a tossed away Moby track, here's your chance. Meanwhile, on the B-side, Lynch moans over some swampy guitars in "I Know" which has been really, really generously compared to Tom Waits and Sparklehorse but is not anywhere near as good as either of those dudes.

Anyway, you can listen to the tracks below and judge for yourself. The single artwork is pretty nice and was created by Vaughan Oliver who has worked with The Pixies. So there's that going for it. The single was released by UK label Sunday Best and is now available on iTunes for all your David Lynch completist needs. [Pitchfork/IFC]
