Call Me Lightning
The Trouble We're In (Revelation Records)

By: Mike SOS

Jagged grooves pervade the latest 10-track release from the Midwestern trio Call Me Lightning. Adopting a slash and burn style and mashing it with dollops of Fugazi-esque sensibility, tracks like the pulsating "Pizza Party" hit your ears at angles only found by the best protractor. A smattering of indie rock chaotically collides with tones emanating from the garage on tracks like "Be The Lightning", while a screaming array of left of center rock like "Ghouls" and "Rotten River" indicates the handiwork of the bastard child of Talking Heads, Violent Femmes, and At the Drive In. The Trouble We're In is jaded and messy, yet strangely captivating, and is worth the listen if you like your rock sans predictability.
