INTERVIEWSStream Lightouts’ Full, Muscular Yet Melodic LP ‘Want’

by Colin Joyce

Gowanus indie-rock outfit jangle and charge their way through 13 tracks of glorious fuzz

With recent LPs from Paws and Parquet Courts and Chelsea Light Moving and er, My Bloody Valentine continuing to satisfy the nerdisphere’s growing appetite for all things #90s, Lightouts’ Want, out this week, feels right on time. Melding Sonic Youth’s mangled guitars and monotonic vocal sensibilities with a taut and measured rhythm section, these Brooklynites manage to tap into an ever-expanding history of blown-out guitar rock and laconic vocals without feeling like a rehasing of rock’n’roll’s recent past.
