New Lightning Bolt : 'Colossus'


Lightning Bolt continue to amaze on their new record Earthly Delights, out Oct. 13 on Load Records. This record finds the guys in a heavier place than 2005's Hypermagic Mountain, and yes, there is such a thing as heavier Lightning Bolt. This record may be more melodic and recognizable to someone who hasn't delved into the band's music much, but it gives the band's long-time fans plenty to grab onto. Lightning Bolt's slow jam "Colossus" is available for your listening pleasure right this very second. The song starts out with a slow bass riff and Brian Chippendale lays down a steady, even-keeled beat that compliments the bass like only Lightning Bolt could. Things pick up in the second half of the song but you should really just hear it for yourself. It's good to have them back.
