Brightblack is Back

The good people at Matador recently debuted a new track from the forthcoming Brightblack Morning Light album Motion To Rejoin. "Hologram Buffalo" treads on Brightblack's familiar psychedelic blues-folk territory, with the layers of drawn-out organ blended with atmospheric vocals that fans have come to expect.

When it comes to the new full-length album, Matador says Brightblack "might well have conjured the perfect Saturday night and Sunday morning album all on the same disc." Based on the expansive vibe of their 2006 self-titled major label debut, I don't think there is any hyperbole involved in that statement. Their sound is perfect for late night/early morning listening.

Brightblack Morning Light's co-founders Nathan Shineywater and Rachael Hughes are hyper earth-conscious, apparently living out of tents and cabins, and they even recorded the new album entirely via solar power in their adobe house in the mesas of New Mexico. What other band can possibly claim that? Look for Motion To Rejoin on September 23.

Although not a band Kelly Stoltz recorded his album this way.
