[dropcap]The[/dropcap] music of John Fryer had an undeniable influence upon David Lynch, who’s compositions with Angelo Badalamenti and Julee Cruise were directly inspired by Fryer’s work on This Mortal Coil.  Things seem to have come full circle, as our 4AD veteran seems to be auditioning for scoring the Twin Peaks revival with his collaboration with another Fraser, this time named Louise.

…and give the man the job for crying out loud.  Wow—just listen to the track “Away” off of the “Tales from a Silent Ocean” EP.  The song is a siren’s call leading a ship to it’s doom while floating on a plane of thick pink fog.  Shipwrecked, marooned, and hallucinating from sunstroke and rum, Muricidae leaves you content in glorious ruin.  Quite literally music for a deserted island.
