Last year I also jumped at the chance to interview Matt Johnson for PopMatters, being such a fan of the band. We discussed their method for songwriting and how their high energy is a natural state of everyday being. For this new album, Johnson says the two spent the winter locked in their place on Grand Street in Brooklyn. “When not watching Game of Thrones or Downton Abbey, we were self-producing and recording our new album Lightning." Johnson explains. "We are SO proud of each and every one of these songs that we are going to roll out a few of them over the course of the summer. So here it is, the first song from Lightning, titled “Let’s Go”. Just for us, put this on your iPod, get in the car, roll your windows down, and turn your stereo up!" Roger that.
