Every great artist should have his muse. The Texas singer Chrysta Bell is definitely the muse of the great filmmaker David Lynch. He not only adores her, but also produced her debut album "This Train". Also here you can dive into the somnambulistic, often threatening cosmos of "Blue Velvet" or "Lost Highway". This begins with clattering train track noises, dreamy electronic sounds like once with the great "Twin Peaks" title music by Angelo Badalamenti and of course with the expressive voice of Bell, which breathes lasciviously, but nevertheless intones full of power. There are also alternative country echoes à la Chris 'Wicked Game' Isaak. With the Schleicherblues "I Die" you expect at any moment a knife between the ribs. Frequently one moves along a fine line between tricky complexity as in Portishead and sultry bar atmosphere, which is never what it seems to be. The mysteriously dragging single "Friday Night Fly" is the best example of this. Great floating atmospheres full of crackling tension can obviously be expected from any Lynch product.
