Emerging from Pittsburgh around four years ago as a duo, Modey Lemon have since added another Moog-mangling member, ensuring a refreshingly turbulent take on garage rock. Into the crazed stew of their UK debut LP goes the jabbering energy of Suicide, certainly, but also The Birthday Party’s psychotic blues, the swampy drama of The Cramps and the sci-fi adventurism of Silver Apples. Vocalist/guitarist Phil Boyd’s primal yowl recalls Kurt Cobain for the most part, but he adopts a more restrained tone on “The Other Direction”, where lean-lined rockabilly is added to the roiling blues squalor. Thunder+Lightning is a storming introduction to a scarily capable new talent.
