As if he somehow could transcendentally meditate his way into our innermost dreams, David Lynch announced this week that he’ll be organizing his very own festival. Pretty rad! A few of us have already lined up for tickets. The musicians announced for the Festival of Disruption include some amazing performers (seriously, Angelo Badalamenti? Seriously?), but that doesn’t mean we won’t be constantly on the lookout for other artists that would fit into Lynch’s world. While that’s not the case with all of the artists on this list, they all have their own dramatic, theatrical, or epic quality, so read on and think of it as our own little festival of the mind.
10. 2ToneDisco feat. Ducky – “Tummy Treasures”
Burgers, doughnuts, popcorn, dim sum, and sushi are just a few of the global “Tummy Treasures” celebrated on 2ToneDisco’s quirky, new synth-laden offering. Comprised of Los Angelinos Omni Rutledge and James Campbell, the duo’s production palette has much in common with the UK’s divisive PC Music collective. As showcased around the 1:55 mark of the Ducky-featuring single, 2ToneDisco amplify the groove with some keytar-influenced riffage. It’s light, infectious, easy-going, and goes well with any drink accompanied with an umbrella — just like the best of a summer day. Better yet, it’s available now as a free download. —Derek Staples
