Lynchland Members Mix #1

Available to stream now - the David Lynch - Lynchland Members Mix #1 featuring Diamond Field and the Black Lodge Girls (Lucy Black, Jazzi Marzcat and Havana Chase) with Chris Ward on sax, with a cover design by myself, featuring an original photograph I've always though was vey 'Lyncherian'.

The song's lyrics are by Havana Chase and are inspired by "A Real Indication” by Angelo Badalamenti And David Lynch From The "Fire Walk With Me" Soundtrack.

As Lynchland describes the compilation:

"A few weeks ago, we asked our members to share their musical creations with us (via www.fb.com/Lynchland). We didn't anticipate receiving such a positive response: about one hundred songs were submitted, and we had a very difficult time choosing only fifteen to appear in this first mix....

Thanks to John Fryer from This Mortal Coil, who submitted a fair amount of fantastic tracks for us to chose from; to Johan Reinholdz, from the great metal band Andromeda (www.facebook.com/AndromedaBand/); and to Kevin Wolzt, who helped with the sound design.

A special thanks to Andrew B. White, who created the cover art and appears in the mix as Diamond Field, a great synthwave project that we highly recommend."
