Entering their 16th year together, LITE boasts a tremendous back catalog of five full-length albums and six EPs, including 2010's Illuminate
(Recorded with John McEntire) and 2012's Past, Present, Future
, which featured Caroline Lufkin from Mice Parade. We were honored to welcome LITE to the Topshelf roster with a re-issue of their 2014 album, Installation
, which also marked their first proper U.S. release.
The prolific quartet's latest offering, Blizzard
, is a 7" single that showcases the band's renowned style of cinematic, melodically rampant math rock. Side A explores a host of stylistic influences, with skittering call-and-response guitars building over an electronic drum loop into a shimmering climax that consumes the listener like a blizzard. B side, "Zone," returns to the signature urgency of LITE, crashing straight into a breakneck, noodling ostinato that perfectly captures the group's cinematic style of composition.
