Local Brooklyn staple Sacred Bones Records has been basking in the glow of Showtime’s storied revival of 90’s cult classic Twin Peaks. While it’s been a few weeks since the last appearance of a track off Sacred Bones, we can’t help but wonder if we’ll hear any more from our hometown heroes in the 9 episodes remaining. David Lynch, who is signed to Sacred Bones himself, has released a variety of Twin Peaks’ soundtracks—and recordings from his other works—on the label. It would be no surprise if we get a bit more music from them in forthcoming episodes.

Eight parts in to the new season, we’ve seen a performance from Trouble, comprised of Lynch’s son Riley on guitar, Dean Hurley (longtime music supervisor for Lynch) on drums, and Alex Zhang Hungtai (Dirty Beaches, Last Lizard) on tenor sax. The song “Snake Eyes,” which they debuted at the Roadhouse (also known as the Bang Bang Bar) on Episode 5, was written and recorded for Twin Peaks’ revival and will be released as a 7″. Sacred Bones reveals more on the collaboration’s release stating:
The B-side to the single consists of the bonus ‘Mother’s Gone;’ a menacing companion track also recorded during the band’s only Twin Peaks recording session. There may never be any more music from Trouble, but this 45 serves as physical evidence of the group’s continued existence in a parallel cinematic universe, grinding out late night Roadhouse gigs in the fictitious town of Twin Peaks, Washington.
We also hear both “Tabloid” and “Habit” by Uniform, another local favorite off Sacred Bones, in two separate scenes this season.

The folks at Sacred Bones have even created a Twin Peaks Spotify playlist, keeping track of all of the music used in season three (which they update weekly after each episode). Fingers crossed that we’ll be seeing some more of their music on this list in the coming weeks.
