It’s hard not to be a little bit awed by Cleveland’s veteran underground rock juggernaut Lamont Thomas. Know America is his fifth LP in four years as Obnox (not to mention the bounty of singles he has in his catalog). Hot on the heels of January’s excellent Boogalou Reed, Know America prents another stunning collection of blown-out, catchy, soulful garage rock. It is hardly a departure for Thomas, but it also shows growth – with each release Thomas’ stature and legend grows.
Steve Mehlman of Pere Ubu and Rocket From the Tombs will be on drums http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/20402-know-america/ https://soundcloud.com/obnox-1
