Listen to The Cactus Blossoms’ ‘Mississippi‘ from ‘Twin Peaks‘
Minneapolis brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, aka The Cactus Blossoms, showed up on the third episode of the new season of ‘Twin Peaks‘ this week.
If you are not familiar with the duo, they were the ones playing the song ‘Mississippi‘ onstage at the Bang Bang Bar at the end of the episode. (Season 3 Episode 3 — “The Return” — Part 3).
‘Mississippi‘ is from The Cactus Blossoms’ 2016 album You’re Dreaming. And it is a perfect song for ‘Twin Peaks‘, as it has such a deliciously surrealistic feel to it.
As for The Cactus Blossoms themselves, I could give you a short description of who they are, how they got started and the type of music they play.
Instead, I am going to send you to The Cactus Blossoms’ own website, where they have a lovely explanation of how they started playing music, and the phenomenal opportunities they keep being given because of it.
The duo is currently on tour with a long list of concerts in both the U.S. and Europe. You can get dates and ticket information here.
You can buy You’re Dreaming on Amazon and, of course, listen to ‘Mississippi‘ in their video below. It is a performance that was recorded live for a World Cafe Session in 2016.
There are also a slew of other sweet live performances of the song on YouTube.
