From the opening riff on "I Found A New Way," the lead-off track from Twin Peaks' Wild Onion(out 8/5 on Grand Jury Records), you can smell a new flavor in the Peaks' borscht. The band's debutSunken often drew comparisons to more jangly affairs, like fellow Chicago-area crooners the Smith Westerns or Girls, though less heartbroken and more guilefully mischievous. With Wild Onion, they found a new way. Sticky with Stones-y riffage and Jagger-esque howls, "I Found A New Way" represents singer/guitarist Clay Frankel's expanded involvement in the songwriting on the new record. His other highlights include "Sweet Thing," "Making Breakfast," and "Good Lovin," rough and tumble rockers, some sensitive, some brash, but all songs we yearn for on this road trip we call life. Stereogum has the goods this morning.
"It's called 'I Found A New Way,' but it's more of a masterful demonstration of old ways - specifically the raucous barroom rock of early '70s Stones, the punchy demeanor of '80s power pop, and the art-damaged classic rock of Lou Reed and Iggy Pop. This thing is a total car stereo jammer, but even if you're sitting at a computer right now it will work its magic." - Stereogum
