Lightning Bolt : The Power of Salad
Pitchfork posted the Peter Glantz and Nick Noe Lightning Bolt documentary The Power of Salad, which chronicles the band's 2001 tour of the country. If you aren't familiar with the band or haven't seen the film, I would suggest watching the film in its entirety on Pitchfork (you have until this coming Friday). If you don't walk away from the film inspired, wanting to listen to, see the band, or make your own music, you might want to reconsider your life. The film was released in 2003 but features tour footage from 2001, and still feels as relevant as ever. A good deal of music often sounds like the time it was created in, but Lightning Bolt's music stands the test of time in the best way. the band is set to tour again in 2009 after a break from playing live and they have another record coming out this year (supposedly), so this year will be good, to say the least.
