New Track: "Urgent Need to Leave" - Lightninging

Slick, far-reaching guitar lines, reinforced by splatterings of drums, create a sense of tension in motion on “Urgent Need to Leave,” courtesy of Philly four-piece Lightninging. The warmth of vocal harmony is countered by the sadness of a desire to depart. A controlled, combative, instrumental outpouring serves as scene-setting, mood-mimicking transitions. Channeling those feelings into fiery, doubled up, guitar bursts, the heaviness of the moment plays out in a melancholy manner.

New Lightninging Album Available for Streaming & Purchase

The quartet of Lightninging just released its new album, The God of Sun & Tuesdays. Pulling from multiple rockin' fronts, the crew appears equally adept at stewing in the expanding, psychedelic cauldron. Conversely contagious, clear-skied harmonies spill fortuitously forward in loose-feeling, expertly-spun instrumental sequences. You can catch Lightninging tomorrow night at Double H Ranch with Something Like A Monument, Man Like Machine, Vaudevileins, and Sedgewick.

New Track: "22/23" - Lightninging

Listen to the sing-along-flavored “22/23,” found on The God of Sun and Tuesdays, the forthcoming full-length from Lightninging. Jumping on board with the dashing bob of percussion, dual-lined guitar licks, and the enthusiastic drinking buddy vocal harmonies, the song feels joyfully self-disparaging, voicing doubt over an enthusiastic musical backdrop. Seemingly serious pondering is given an afternoon party setting. You can catch Lightninging at Bourbon & Branch on August 30 with The Orange Drop and Wildings.

When Lightninging Comes at Ortlieb's July 22

The brooding, impending storm of sound known as Lightninging is one that gradually develops, marinating in subtle layers of psychedelic tones that service as warnings for when the rains are going to come. Tonight, that downpour occurs at Ortlieb’s, bringing with it forays of melodic guitar runs, while engulfing you in an excursion which naturally pushes further as the quintet digs down into a jammed-out sweet spot that hits a spot on the musical map which they desire. The experimental rock of local four-piece Purples combines harmonious vocals, groove-thumping backend, and guitar heat with cinematic scene-shaping sonic twists. The genre-spanning, NYC-residing Gladshot offers joyfully smooth, casual, bouncing tunes that give off a folky-funky, lyrically inquisitive vibe. Ortlieb’s, 847 N. Third St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Lightninging Strikes Again at Boot & Saddle Feb. 12

“Jesus Christ of the City,” the first single from local quartet Lightninging's upcoming LP The God of Sun & Tuesdays is a song that intoxicatingly embraces. As the guitar sets a wandering path, Greg O’Neill’s vocals offer an insiders eye-in-the-sky perspective. Then, the walls inside the room begin to shake as the vocals reach back and the instrumentation truly gear up and reach out screaming in unison and demonstrating internal strength and emotion while flexing in a controlled torrent of sound. Comprised of O’Neill, Mark Cruttenden (whom both perform in Baroque-pop outfit Tutlie) and the backend combo of Matt Williams and Greg Foran (who also team up in Static Mountain), the group’s heavy melodic brand of psychedelic rock makes their resurgence a welcomed return. Tonight’s Boot & Saddle lineup also features the heart-pounding four-piece of A Brood of Vipers and the grease-slicked, stick-to-your-skin bluesy trio of Reverend Mantis. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita
