Mishka NYC Bloglin reviews two remixes by The Tleilaxu Music Machine

May 29th, 2011


How can your interest not be piqued when you’re presented with remixes of music from Twin Peaks and a deep Ennio Morricone cut? They were waiting suggestively in our mailbox today courtesy of The Tleilaxu Music Machine and they’re both witchy, twitchy, and pretty goddamned cool overall. Together, they’d serve well as the soundtrack for a spooktacular party at a haunted house, if you’re into that kind of thing.

The first track, “I Saw Her Die,” uses the framework of Ennio Morricone’s score for an obscure Italian film from 1972 and answers the question of its title. The intro is deceptively innocuous, but then the droning beats and sludging-up of the children’s chorus warps the track into more sinister territory. Based on a single scene in Twin Peaks in which Audrey Horne cuts a rug, “Audrey’s Trance” is slower and maintains a certain sensuality despite its propensity to freak listeners out. Blame it on Sherilynn Fenn, the actress who plays Audrey, whose voice makes a seductive cameo in the track.

It’s hard to make music that’s simultaneously eerie and danceable, but The Tleilaxu Music Machine makes it happen with these remixes…
