Lithics “Specs” from the album ‘Mating Surfaces.’ Available from Kill Rock Stars on LP, CS, CD, and MP3 at lithics.bandcamp.com/album/mating-surfaces
n a grey winter morning Lithics used a handheld video camera to shoot scenes of themselves pretending to play music, walking around a reservoir, blowing their noses etc, and synced it to the song Specs. It was easy, literally anyone could have done it. Specs, a song loosely about the presumptuous desire to know the details about a stranger’s personal life, is the second single from their new record Mating Surfaces, out May 25th on Kill Rock Stars!
Mating Surfaces is the second full length from Portland, Oregon’s Lithics. Twelve tightly wound fragments of brittle abstract twin guitar, impellent rhythm, and absurd, imagistic lyricism.
“A stern danceable sound that summons cut up snapshots of Su Tissue and Mark E Smith, an imagined landscape where Captain Beefheart hits that 99 Records “Too Many Creeps” beat.”
-Layla Gibbon (Maximum Rocknroll, Skinned Teen).
