Lithium Zion is not a new kind of battery or a comic book planet. Rather, it’s the latest record from Melbourne noise outfit Deaf Wish that is as energizing as the former and the latter. The band’s fifth full-length album furthers its sonic-excursion ethos inspired by Australia’s unpredictable wilderness, and in keeping with true punk rock, Deaf Wish plays loud and fucks with both distortion and levity. If you like the droning rock tones of early Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and the chaos of Detroit’s Protomartyr, Deaf Wish is for you. The Gotobeds and Paint Thinner are also on the bill.
