POST-PUNK. This double a-sided 7" from Portland’s LITHICS is a pre-requisite for your next mutant disco. Precise, serrated pop, each one of these songs is a tiny world in its own, a locked groove you could inhabit forever, a million tiny clashes. Taking cues from CAPTAIN BEEFHEART, BUSH TETRAS, PYLON et al, this is a perfect companion to their new full-length on Kill Rock Stars. Limited to 500 copies on black vinyl.

7" 8.50€*

 

POST-PUNK. After introducing themselves to the world with 2016's "borrowed floors" and throwing down the gauntlet with 2018's "mating surfaces", LITHICS make the jump to Trouble In Mind for their new album. "tower of age" bristles with invention, wedging lyrical Dadaism into right angles of rhythmic minimalism.Guitars plunk and scratch, and rhythms pulse and syncopate tightly wound around an imagist's philosophy. The band's austere approach to composition and wordplay elevates them above and beyond bands seeking similar sounds; it's not that they use less; it's how they use less.
