SOME STUFFS: Lightning Bolt to shred guts this summer and will bring an “archival” EP along with them

They’re… well, they’ve always been around but someone silent as of late. A few tracks from the vaults have been released, but now there’s the announcement that Load Records will be releasing “an archival EP of lost material from 2008” called Oblivion Hunter. This EP will be released on vinyl and digital, and with a new item to purchase means Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson are preparing to cross the country that is the United States, which they will do in August beginning in the nation’s capitol.

RECORD CRACK: Neon Indian has Twin Shadow remix him for forthcoming Record Store Day 10 inch

Record Store Day is on its way, and Neon Indian will be releasing a 45 of a Twin Shadow remix of “Hex Girlfriend”. The photo above will be the front picture sleeve. Imagine your mom coming over to visit, and she says “hi honey, wanted to see if you needed any money to make ends meet this month and… oh my gosh dern, oh my gosh dern, what is this?” You say “oh, it’s Neon Indian.” Then your mom says “well, this reminds me of some photos your father did of me, but anyway…” and meanwhile, your friends in your dorm have wide eyes. All you want to do is get everyone out and listen to the record again, while your face turns beet red. Sick, isn’t it?

The record will be in the form of a 10″, with the album version on one side, the remix on the other. Only 500 copies will be pressed so if you’re a fan, snag it before you have to pay messed up prizes on eBay.

Also, I’d like to be able to travel as much as Neon Indian. It seems every time I get a new press releases, it’s for another tour, and in this case he’s going out this week. How do you do it? SXSW, Coachella, there’s no stopping this:
