REPOST: new Lightning Bolt
MP3: Lightning Bolt - Colossus
IT'S THE END OF MATT GIORDANO WEEK HERE AT FUCK YEAH! GO TEAM!
Goodbye, from the final installment of the Matt Giordano week here at the blog. Normally, it would be a cop-out to end the week with a repost, however, this new Lightning Bolt song is so fucking good that all is forgiven. Hugs and kisses? Fuck yeah!!
This post is going to be a bit strange, as it's more of a review-slash-repost of something recently. 30 August was the last of the Jelly NYC Pool Parties, and they had one of indie rock's current darlings, Grizzly Bear, close it out. The opener, Vega was one of the worst bands I have both seen and heard recently. I do not recommend. Both Beach House and Grizzly Bear performed their sleepytime music well, but it would have been much better suited for civil twilight rather than a sunny afternoon. However, my experience was bogged down by the fact that, whilst at the show, I learned the mighty Lightning Bolt was playing at the same time. It was a little disheartening knowing I was missing that monumental wall of sound for, although musically competent, less rocking acts. So yeah, check out that new Lightning Bolt joint—again and again.
