16 Songs, 40 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

The ‘60s garage rock revival has been going strong since the days of the early-‘80s underground scene that featured bands like The Chesterfield Kings, The Vipers, The Gravedigger V, The Pandoras, and hundreds of other groups. In 2014, garage rock focuses less on recreating the old sounds and styles than exploring the freakiest sounds on modern guitar pedals and on the outboard gear in modest studios. These Chicago kids are versed in The Rolling Stones and The Beach Boys along with modern influences like Ty Segall and The Black Lips. For Twin Peaks’ second album, Wild Onion, they moved out of their singer’s basement studio (where their debut was recorded) and tried out a real facility. The upgrade in sound quality hurts them none. The debut single, “Flavor,” nails down their energy and enthusiasm in two minutes, but it’s just a taste of what the quartet can do. “Strawberry Smoothie,” “Mirror of Time,” “Telephone,” and “Hold On” further explore their talents and abilities to twist their influences in greater depth.
