    Though Twin Peaks are positioned next to local garage-rockers The Orwells, the Smith Westerns, and countless other bands with vanilla influences like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, the 20-year-olds have more than enough chops to rise above the rest.

    Twin Peaks somehow manage to translate the last ten years of American guitar music into a 40 minute package that will help you remember why you fell in love with all of the bands which ‘changed your life’ in the first place.

    Masters of their craft, this grand exploration could probably go with some cutting down and honing exercised, but these are fresh faces heading out into the great unknown.

    The record’s cross-section of overlapping sounds and styles is buoyed by its layout. By scattering the louder tunes from the delicate ones and the moodier, more ambient songs from the rowdy rockers, the band keeps listeners on their toes.

    On their second record, the spunky quartet pull offExile-era Stones strut and Velvet Underground guitar poesy with sophistication that's beyond their years, and a sense of humor, too.

    Lacking the necessary cohesion to make it a truly stellar album, Wild Onion instead plays like a wildly enjoyable compilation of like-minded musicians exploring the possibilities afforded them by a future that is wide open.

    There's some great individual tracks here, but they need their next full-length to be less Jekyll and Hyde and more Laura Palmer and Maddy Ferguson.
