Lightning Bolt

Thrill Jockey
Thrill-498 - 2020

First time on 2XLP! Includes two tracks never before on LP, "Zone" and "And Beyond". Bonus tracks only digitally available on vinyl coupons, free with vinyl purchase.

Hand-screened wrap by Brian Chippendale, printed by Crosshair.  

Long sought after, this record has not been available new on vinyl since it’s first pressing two decades ago. Released as a double LP, the second LP features songs recorded at the same time but never released before on vinyl. Packaged in a silkscreen wrap using the original design by Brain Chippendale, printed by Crosshair. Truly, a must-have for any Lightning Bolt fan. 

Since their first moment, it seems like they’ve been as electric as their name suggests. Lightning Bolt, their first album, captures that energy in a raw form. Famously lo-fi, this is the album that’s been described as most feeling like being at one of their shows. It’s difficult to listen and not want to jump with the crowd it feels like must be huddled around the amp producing an incredible wave of noise, astonishingly coming from just two musicians. You can hear the threads of their later work; use of repetition, a sense of grinding and building, noise melting to guitar solos. This album is loud, and the riffs repeated become mesmerizing as they warp slowly thru the songs.
