Lightbulbs (Impossible Objects of Desire Edition)
The group have decided to revisit their 2008 record, Lightbulbs, as it had been out of print since its initial release. The follow up to Transparent Things, the record includes the singles ‘Knickerbocker’, ‘Sore Thumb and ‘UH’ - the latter song has steadily increased in popularity due to its use in the first season of ‘Breaking Bad’.
Lightbulbs still remains unquestionably Fujiya & Miyagi sounding, tweaking their past aesthetic whilst creating a bridge to where they would travel next. With a plush new re-master, the album sounds crisper and punchier than it did before. It’s a fascinating snapshot of a group in transition as they start to shed their formative influences and travel onwards.
