David Lynch & Underground Music

The Guardian: ‘A glance across the new music scene, from the stark songstress Chelsea Wolfe to the dislocated 50s pop of Dirty Beaches, shows an odd but unifying influence at work: the surreal and unsettling films of the man behind “Blue Velvet” and “Eraserhead.” Nowhere is David Lynch’s presence more keenly felt than in the music of Lana Del Ray, whose track “Video Games” (above) caused music critics to self-combust with delight this summer. Blurring the boundaries between old-school glamour and sleek modern pop (think Patsy Cline gone R&B), it came with a video of…stumbling starlets that, like Mulholland Drive, alluded to the dark side of the Hollywood dream.’
