After selling out the Record Store Day exclusive pressing and landing on the Billboard Top 200, XIU XIU are back with the wide release of Plays The Music of Twin Peaks. The album is already being heralded as Xiu Xiu’s best album in years, with the band’s interpretation of Angelo Badalamenti’s classic television score earning praise from the likes of Pitchfork to The New Yorker and Noisey to the Village Voice. Selling out shows the world over, with more US dates being added every day, this momentum doesn’t look to be slowing down any time soon.
- LP pressed on (180-gram white and clear vinyl).
- Packaged in gatefold jackets.

- Produced by Jherek Bischoff (Amanda Palmer, Ariel Pink).
"It’s difficult to overstate the cultural impact of Twin Peaks 25 years ago. Transferring his art-house cinema ethic to the small screen, David Lynch’s cerebral, surrealist murder mystery series towered like a desert skyscraper over the wastelands of mainstream US TV drama.
A large part of the series’ appeal lay in the hypnotic, spectral soundtrack that won a Grammy for its composer, Angelo Badalamenti. Invited earlier this year to reinterpret that music for a Lynch retrospective at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, Californian avant-noise trio Xiu Xiu have now taking their work on a world tour." - The Guardian
