New Lightning Bolt (Reviewed and Streamed)


earthlydelightsPitchfork has a review of Lightning Bolt’s new record – Earthly Delights – and you can stream al 9 tracks for your very own pleasure.

For something so simple and direct, Lightning Bolt’s music is pretty genre-straddling. Ask a fan for a description and you’ll likely hear more about what they do– play loud, fast, and insanely repetitive– than how they sound. Not so long ago “loud and fast” meant punk, but now those words could just as easily mean noise, prog, metal, grunge, lo-fi, even techno. Lightning Bolt’s chugging riffs, splattering beats, and amplified overload contain all those styles. Often the only difference between their songs is which label fits a little more than the others.
