Want Album Reviews: SPIN, SYFFAL(10/10!!), The Record Stache, AOL Spinner

We’re beyond excited to finally be able to share our album Want with you! We’ve been humbled by your amazing support and also the crazy reviews we’ve been getting. You can purchase the album from iTunes now. Here’s a sampling of the reviews:

10/10 Star Review: “The great thing about Want is how different it sounds from everything and not in a reactionary sort of way… They aren’t trying to sound original or better than the rest of the bands coming out of Brooklyn, they just are. Essentially Want is the kind of album that rock music was invented for.” – Tim Baker, SYFFAL

“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 rehashing of rock’n’roll’s recent past.” – Colin Joyce, SPIN

“Their unique sound grafts dark romantic Cure-like post punk onto a wall of fuzzed out guitars with poppy melodies that bloom from the cracks within.” – Atlas And The Anchor

“… perfect for lovers of the nu-nu-wave of ’90s-gone-feral punkos like Parquet Courts and PAWS. Check out these cloud somethings.” – Chris Weingarten, SPIN 

“These guys are no mainstream band, however, they are the definition of indie rock.” – Sirens of Decay

“Want is also sonically sophisticated. Lightouts somehow blend the vocals abilities of Bono, the campy choral effects of the Cure and the brutal crunch of Surfer Blood into something that totally works.” – Cameron Matthews, Spinner

“If you’re someone who still believes in guitar-driven indie/alternative, then “want” is how you should be feeling about Lightouts’ album.” – MusicEmissions
