    Tracks of the Week: Twin [part 2]

    Cocteau Twins "Ivo" - The college radio station I used to work at may have had the largest Cocteau Twins collection in North America. From what I could tell, it had every full-length and single from the seminal Scottish ethereal band. Like the band Wire, chalk up the Cocteau Twins as a band that I really should've explored well before now. However I just recently gave Treasure a listen for the first time. And wow. I mean wow. Not a single clunker on the whole album. Buy It.

    Stars of the Lid "Music for Twin Peaks Episode #30" - Hey kids! Who wants some drone? This is a nice slow-moving piece from the Texan group's The Ballasted Orchestra release from 1997. This track never actually appeared in a Twin Peaks episode. They just seem to like David Lynch a lot. They named another track after Mulholland Drive on their most recent record. I assume they were bowing to the movie, not the road. But who knows with these crazy kids and their post-post-post indie music these days. Buy It.
