The owls may not be what they seem, but neither does David Lynch. As a director, writer, musician, actor, artist, even furniture designer, he truly does it all. It's no surprise that his surrealistic influence extends to the music world, so on today, his 69th birthday, KEXP pays tribute to Lynch with a roundup of songs and bands who borrowed from his rich repertoire, either through samples, song lyrics referencing his work, or even band names. Enjoy some damn fine coffee and cherry pie as you check out the playlist below. And Twin Peaks fans, rejoice: in 2017, Showtime will premiere six new episodes of the beloved 1990 TV cult classic.
