New Band Smell : Lightouts

Rock & Roll Submarine may be one of the worst titles ever bestowed upon a record, but Urge Overkill’s comeback record sent me into a 90’s indie rock nostalgia shame spiral. Not that I have all that much to be ashamed of, as much of the music from that period holds up surprisingly well (Pixies, Smashing Pumpkins) and many of the survivors (Urge Overkill, Greg Dulli, Dinosaur Jr. et al) are still churning out material that merits your attention.

Perhaps not surprisingly, the pull of the 90s can still be heard in newer bands, such as Lightouts, a Gowanus-based duo that sounds a little like what JAMC might sound like with Robert Smith fronting. And if you listen real close, you’ll hear an honest to goodness guitar solo. Chain me down, Martha!
