'Twin Peaks' Returns

If you listen really quietly at 9 p.m. (or whatever time it premieres in your area) this Sunday night, you'll probably hear the faint echo of Angelo Badalamenti's famous theme playing nearby as David Lynch brings us back to Twin Peaks, Washington after 25 years away. Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan) is back for more pie and damn good coffee, and he's going to encounter a whole bunch of new characters, played by everyone from Jim Belushi to Sky Ferreira.

And if you really want to immerse yourself in Twin Peaks arcana, check out Dover Quartet and their music inspired by the iconic score from the series (they'll also be performing May 30th at le Poisson Rouge in New York City).
