Album Review

On their third LP, Down in Heaven, Twin Peaks hang on to their rough-and-raw disposition while drawing sonic inspiration from favorite albums of 1968, including, per press materials, works by the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, and the Beatles. Bolstered throughout the album by the addition of Wild Onion co-producer Colin Croom to the lineup on keyboards (notably organ), the era, if not a specific year, is resurrected from the moment the needle hits vinyl with the sassy, T. Rex-grooving opener "Walk to the One You Love." Parts of the record capture the more reflective tone associated with the late '60s, such as the regretful, even-tempered "Holding Roses" and the brass-embellished "Lolisa," which could almost pass for an unreleased, post-"Penny Lane" British Invasion demo. The most prevalent personality of the album, though, is that of loose and sexy, post-"Jumpin' Jack Flash"-period Stones. Tunes like "Keeping It Together" and "Cold Lips" offer Jagger-esque vocals similar enough to inspire bedroom-mirror impressions. Elsewhere, even slower tunes like "Wanted You" and "Stain" still flutter with restrained impulsiveness, filling spaces with guitar interjections, hooting backing vocals, and expressive percussion. The sparse yet jaunty acoustic-guitar tune "Heavenly Showers" staggers down a brick-laid alley rather than resting on a stoop ("And I woke up in my bed/And saw the books and the records and the booze/And I shook the thoughts of love from my head/And in the shower started singing a tune"). Meanwhile, treats like "Butterfly" and "Have You Ever" throw the '60s into Twin Peaks' distinct twist on contemporary garage punk. If on average more reflective and restrained — though here these terms are all relative — established fans will be glad to know that Down in Heaven still carries the torch of garage rock, and anyone who misses the free-spirited, clattering style of those influences has a generous 13 new tracks to enjoy.

Customer Reviews

Awesome album

Love them. Great album. Give these guys some support so they can keep making awesome stuff. God knows they need the money.

Better than nothing

My brother loves sunken. I love wild onion. We both agree the third album is disappointing.

Their greatest songs are from the first 2:

Irene
Stand in the sand
Flavor
Telephone
Strawberry smoothie
Mirror of time

... And my favorite is the piano demo for mind frame.

From the new record my favorite is You Don't

I love this band and hope to see them live, but regardless if the positive reviews I think this is their weakest album.

There is a theme to all the songs listed above

Favs

This album hasn't even come out yet but I already know it's going to be phenomenal.

Biography

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '10s

The flaming embers of '60s garage rock and the flaming-hot fire of the 2010s garage punk sound burn bright in Twin Peaks. The group was formed by four young Chicago natives (vocalist/guitarist Cadien Lake James, guitarist Clay Frankel, bassist Jack Dolan, and drummer Connor Brodner) in the early 2010s. The guys had known each other and been friends since elementary school, but only formed a band after the duo James had with his brother Hal split up so Hal could join the Smith Westerns.
