Lightning Bolt : King Candy

Track artwork

It’s hard to believe stripped-back Providence, Rhode Island noise duo Lightning Bolt have been making an unholy racket together for the best of two decades; it’s harder still to believe that Brians Chippendale and Gibson can continue to make a bass guitar and a drum-kit sound so tirelessly thrilling. On September 25, Load Records will release Oblivion Hunter, a collection of previously unreleased tracks recorded at scattered sessions from the last few years; “King Candy” (below) is the cobweb-clearing opener.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
