CMJ Spotlight: Lightouts

We could tell you a story that a want ad lead to NYC music scene vet Greg Nelson joining Gavin Rhodes in forming the band Lightouts but you wouldn’t believe us. We’re not joking, it’s true. Gavin Rhodes was looking for “Robert Smith/Emily Haines” but he received far more when Nelson joined his band. Together, as Lightouts, the duo have drawn comparisons from everyone from The Hold Steady to Surfer Blood. Take a listen to a few songs below and let us know who you think they sound like and come catch them LIVE at our CMJ day party at the Delancey on Friday October 21st at 12:05pm
