Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt) share tales of hitting things, announce collaborative LP

Microwave popcorn sure is delicious, but if manufacturers don’t make some noticeable changes, I’m going to announce an official revolt against kernels (plus a mild contempt for colonels for being willfully submissive to the satanic art of homonyms). The popping set about just prior to my movie-watching has my taste buds anticipating, while at the same time, my ears are hoping for a memorable fulfillment of the chaotic rhythms that the ballooning, buttery package only hints at for its minute-and-a-half duration. What’s the alternative? Can I really trust that Orville Redenbacher, Inc. will satisfy my/our desires for post-pop… corn?

Luckily, here’s an unambiguously superior option: drummers Greg Saunier (Deerhoof) and Brian Chippendale (Lightning Bolt, Black Pus) have just revealed a collaborative LP, recorded live at Brooklyn venue Death By Audio (RIP) back in June 2013. You can imagine what the two improvising together must sound like, and it’s almost as if the mental relief offered by punching a punching bag is deemed unnecessary by their respective forcefulness. Haven’t heard the entire thing yet, though.

It’s out December 15 in an edition of 500 “electric blue vinyl with white splatter,” and the release accompanies an intriguing documentary called Checking in at 20 (from Death By Audio Films), which you can watch in full below. Popcorn and I are done, btw.
