Our album of the week (16th October 2009)
Last we left this amplified tribe of two on 2005 s Hypermagic Mountain , Lightning Bolt were tossing thousand of years worth of musical history into a wood chipper and coming up with some chewy chainsaw taffy. This new missive, Earthly Delights, comes after two years of intensive electro-shock therapy driven recording.. The doors of Lightning Bolt s practice space literally spill forth giga-liters of sweat born of echo-stretched dedication to archaeology of understanding advanced musicology. Taking the lessons of extreme meta and blood-brother marrying them to expansive and explosive song form and applying it to Olympic training methods Earthly Delights uses electric stimulus to shock smile technology to worldwide domes. This is what two thousand years of evolution and the invention of electric instrumentation introduced into the tank of hook force can do to you. Fidelity and attention to tune smithery are total, so please, dear listener place your alabaster hand in mine and embark on a musical journey that will take you to places both divine and sublime. This record has the sound of a ten piece band with a much tighter pay scale, matched with the sonics of military cartoons. This record is truly the sound of the air show ablaze with the joy of a ground-bound fighter powerless to eject. WORLDWIDE TOURING to ensure liberal media carpet bomb - buy nachos, records and beer. Swank art work from Nobel Peace Prize winning artist Brian Chippendale on both CD/LP and etching on 4th side of LP.
