PREMIERE: LIGHTNING LOVE
Lightning Love helps the medicine go down in the most delightful way.
While we hate to take pleasure in someone else's pain, some of the best albums ever come from an artist's attempts to self-medicate through song. Now that doesn't mean our latest discovery, Lightning Love, is all doom and gloom.

Think of the trio from Ypsilanti, Michigan as a spoonful of sweet-and-low to help the bitter pill - life, love, breakups, anxiety - go down. And help keep your mascara in tact. Maybe with a Bud Light chaser.
The band's sparse basement pop melodies written by lead singer Leah Diehl are giving us misty water-colored memories of Rilo Kiley's Saddle Creek days. Which is really, really promising and we can't wait to hear the rest of their debut The Blonde out August 28th.
Take a listen below, download the track (free!) and take daily with pop-tarts to lighten up those blues!
