Music Moment: Chrysta Bell and David Lynch

I think that I do like this ‘project’, I think. Chrysta Bell has a lovely voice, though I am not entirely convinced by the mechanism of it, words put in her mouth and  her erotic wrything in expensive lingerie under a much older man’s direction. Strangely though Lynch is known for digging up the darkest most repressed secret aspects of Western culture,  here it feels like he is perpetuating that darkness somehow. Bell’s movements appear contrived but perhaps they need each other artistically. I’m a bit suspicious of the subliminal enculturization  here – Lynch being an icon of subcultural cool for the masses –  and not a massive fan of post-modern, post-feminist burlesque myself, I’d rather just listen to the music…
