D//E Exclusive Premiere: A Place Both Wonderful And Strange: The Laura Palmer Devastations

8.12.16



In 2014, Russ Marshalek, the founder and one third of the Brooklyn-based occult electronic group, A Place Both Wonderful And Strange, received a commission from the David Lynch Foundation to create a piece for his Philly art opening's after party. That turned out as a performance piece called Keys Open Doors: The Hidden Life of Laura Palmer, which uses "harsh noise and soft ambience, filmstrips, found footage and movement to tell the secrets about the final horrible moments in the tragic life of Twin Peak's Laura Palmer."

Last year the band released a version of the soundtrack component, called The Laura Palmer Deviations, and performed two sold-out release shows, one in Philly at PhilaMOCA and one in Brooklyn at the Morbid Anatomy Museum.

On December 30th A Place Both Wonderful And Strange is set to release a new album consisting of remixes from the aforementioned record, titled The Laura Palmer Devastations, including the contributions of Azar Swan, Winkie, Prima Primo, Hiding and Knifesex. D//E is proud to premiere the album in its dark and gloriously downcast entirety below.

The album is going to be the first release on Marshalek's newly established record label, 0WLs.
