Premiere: Lightning Bolt, “Flooded Chamber” MP3

Dear Art Bell, our hero: please help us translate these freakish transmissions, because we are pretty sure if the Lightning Bolt boys are not in fact alien life forms communicating in their real languages, they are in fact conduits for UFO sounds like unleashed, defrequencied satellites. The more we listen to it, the more we are convinced it is warping our brains like plastic in a microwave, reshaping our synapses until we, too, will morph into the pod people and finally be set free. Lightning Bolt titled their new album Earthly Delights, and they are coincidentally about to tour the blue planet—Japan, Auckland/New Zealand, and the UK, to be precise—so check the dates after the jump.
