Conceived as a companion piece to Cory Strand's upcoming "A Song for David Lynch" EP on Small Doses, "A Second Song for David Lynch" reaches further into the grotesque spectacle located in the heart of David Lynch's universe.  More reflective of the bleak and disturbing confusion of "Inland Empire," Lethe's vision highlights the nightmarish qualities of Lynch's work, the epic noir horror found lurking in the shadowy recesses of bizarre imagery and lurid color. 
Beauty is far from absent, though.  Lethe continues Strand's exploration of "Twin Peaks" through vaguely melodic overtones and jazz-tinged structural elements.  In the mind of David Lynch, numerous worlds exist alongside one another, strange and evocative, haunting and complex, often violent, and always weird.  The overlaps create distortions, pockets of surreality that threaten to become the known.  The only recourse is love and the individual, quirk and fetish.  "A Second Song for David Lynch" attempts to map out the famed director's melodramatic approach to psychological horror, with surprisingly lovely results.  Altar of Waste is pleased to present this set of recordings in a DVD package designed and constructed by Cory Strand in a limited edition of 10 hand-numbered copies.  $10 ppd. in the United States.  Overseas, please inquire as to exact cost.
