Barcode: 790377499117
Packaging: LP Regular

Baby Blue Sky Coloured Vinyl.
Ride the Skies is the 2nd album by Lightning Bolt, and this re-release makes it available to fans for the first time since it's original
release. Compared to their first album it's cleaner, tighter, recorded
in studio rather than live. Which is not to say this is boring or
sanitized in any way, Lightning Bolt never fail to make magic,
filling a space with loud, raw sound. Sounds of synth or guitar turn
out to be bass, and riffs become patterns, become a beat in the
background, become a wall of noise, become a clear sound above
it all. Lightning Bolt are known for the sound that truly comes into
it's own in this album.
Outside of their 7 acclaimed albums, they're known for frequent &
exhilarating live shows, and this reputation has created a market for
their older titles. Ride the Skies is re-released with deluxe packaging
featuring jacket art that was designed by Brian Chippendale for
the original release but has never been realized until now. Recent
Thrill Jockey Lightning Bolt re-releases seem to move as quickly
as the Brian's playing live, as old and new fans jump at the rare
opportunity to finally get an old favorite in a shiny new jacket.
"on Ride the Skies, Gibson makes his bass do things ... resulting in
some of the most distinctive tones ever to be produced from the
instrument. Brian Chippendale... rounds off the dynamic duo of
Brian's that is Lightning Bolt. With a style that's similarly frantic,
though decidedly more conventional than his fellow Brian,
Chippendale completes the musical package nicely, intensifying
the furious energy that makes Ride the Skies so fucking awesome."
