lightning bolt - captain caveman

i'm not really into a bunch of noise-rock bands but there's something about lightning bolt that i really find enjoyable. the band is from rhode island and recently put out a new album entitled "hypermagic mountain" on load records. the album is a non-stop 57 minute long rollercoaster ride filled with feedback induced bass guitars and heavy pounding drums while the vocals tend to take the back seat and show up only on occasion. in a genre filled with bands that normally come across as pretentious, lightning bolt proves to be a diamond in the rough. recommended if you like: hella, 400 blows, wolf eyes.

Yeah, Lightning Bolt pretty much kicks a lot of ass. Nice post. Oh, I also (from your post below) was inspired to get the Amanda Rogers EP. The production is all over the place, but her songwriting is great and I love the ATDI cover. I'm gonna post it sometime this week. Thanks.
