Lithics is a four person minimalist punk band from Portland, Oregon formed in late 2014. Mating Surfaces is their second album. Twelve tightly wound fragments of brittle abstract twin guitar, impellent rhythm, and absurd, imagistic lyricism.
"A stern danceable sound that summons cut up snapshots of Su Tissue and Mark E Smith, an imagined landscape where Captain Beefheart hits that 99 Records “Too Many Creeps” beat." -Layla Gibbon (Maximum Rocknroll, Skinned Teen).
