Singer-songwriter Grant-Lee Phillips' latest album

First edition LP limited to 1,000 copies

Includes red vinyl 7-inch single of two unreleased songs from the Lightning sessions

Recorded and mixed by Pete Min (The Strokes, Andrew Bird) at Lucy's Meat Market, Los Angeles

Grant-Lee Phillips' latest album, Lightning, Show Us Your Stuff, is a turbulent and highly musical rumination
that finds the veteran singer-songwriter addressing the strange fragility of life. His tenth solo release bears the
markings of his prolific output, a melodic prowess and an ear for lyric in everyday conversation. The album offers a salve to a wounded world, struggling to regain equilibrium. This is Grant-Lee Phillips at his most reflective, wrestling with the most pertinent of questions. What we value, how we define security, our vulnerability — here Phillips takes stock of the deeper questions with intensity and humor.

Lightning, Show Us Your Stuff is grown from the same rich soil that Phillip's long career, from Grant Lee Buffalo
to his solo work has sprang from. The result is a beautifully human musical tapestry. The warm, live on the floor,
instrumental bed is the perfect support for Phillips' inimitable voice. This spontaneous approach has become a
tradition among his solo works.
