Lightning Bolt & Jay-Z Tracklistings

Influential Rhode Island based band Lightning Bolt is set to finally release their sophomore album, Earthly Delights in October. Take a look at the trippy cover and track listing below...

01 Sound Guardians
02 Nation of Boar
03 Colossus
04 The Sublime Freak
05 Flooded Chamber
06 Funny Farm
07 Rain on Lake I'm Swimming In
08 S.O.S.

Also unleashing track listings this week was Jay-Z for his much anticipated Blueprint 3 which is due Sept. 11, exactly eight years after his first Blueprint. You will find Jigga only does three tracks solo and the rest of the 15 song opus has guests. One guest that is noticeably missing is his Brooklyn neighbors, MGMT, the psychedelic duo were supposed to do music for a track and they are absent. Also, some songs that were on the original planned version that was supposed to drop last year are missing such as "My President is Black," "Jockin' Jay-Z" and "Brooklyn We Go Hard" featuring Santigold. Anyhow, here is the track listing for Blueprint 3...
