Johnny Jewel Surprise Releases New LP 'Themes For Television'

Monday, 21 May 2018 Written by Laura Johnson

Johnny Jewel has released a surprise album.

'Themes For Television' is comprised of 21 tracks that he wrote when working on material for Twin Peaks: The Return. A physical release will follow on June 29 through Italians Do It Better.

Speaking about the record, Jewel said:

“I was about a year deep into recording what would become Windswept when I heard that David was making Season 3. It’s been a year since Chromatics performed at the Roadhouse. With disintegrated memory through the haze of television snow, I wanted to share a glimpse behind the red curtain.”

“The project began as a sonic exploration of the sounds I was hearing in my nightmares. I wanted to find my way out of the maze by focusing on beauty over fear — like the way the fractured sunrise looks in a dream.”

But do we ever truly consider what they must have been through to produce such deeply personal music? And would we be comfortable releasing the contents of our lives for the whole world to hear and critique?
Kamasi Washington - Heaven and Earth (Album Review)
Tue 26 Jun 2018
On Kamasi Washington’s second solo record, ‘Heavenand Earth’, the L.A. bandleader has called up an impressive team of players including Tony Austin, Ronald Bruner, Jr., Brandon Coleman, Cameron Graves, Terrance Martin, Miles Mosley and Thundercat. The result is a distinguished double-album of rich intensity that channels galactic fusion, sounds from ‘70s blaxploitation and sprawling jazz spirituals.
