Jack Name set to release Weird Moons and put David Lynch tweets into context

If you follow David Lynch on Twitter, his feed is pretty much as you’d expect David Lynch’s Twitter feed to be… weird and wonderful. One of my all-time-favorite Lynch tweets was this ditty on June 21, 2010 where he simply declares “I’m pretty sure I’m connected to the moon”.

Well now that tweet makes perfect sense, because I’ve heard the lead single “Running After Ganymede” from Jack Name’s forthcoming album Weird Moons album and I’m pretty sure that it’s Name’s Weird Moon that Lynch is connected to. Name has previously lent his musical talents to White Fence, Cass McCombs, and Ariel Pink, but this shit is next level.

As evidenced below, Weird Moons is all wiggly synths, paranoid vocals, and creepy undertones that you don’t need to stretch your mind very far to imagine Lynch himself nodding along to with a gin on the rocks in one hand and a Marlboro in the other.

Jack Name will unleash Weird Moons on the world on January 20 via Castle Face Records and tour with Castle Face impresario John Dwyer and his band Thee Oh Sees through November and into December.
