Artist/Band: Brightblack Morning Light
Track: Everybody Daylight
Album: Brightblack Morning Light
Label: Matador Records
Stoned out Hippie Rock usualy isn't my thing, but these guys bring a touch of darkness that sucks me in everytime.
Comprised of Nathan Shineywater and Rachel Hughes, Brightblack Morning Light fuse smokey rhodes keys, reverb soaked blues guitars, hand claps, tasteful percussion and flutes together on their self titled debut for Matador records.
The Story on these two is they wrote this record while living technically homeless for 18 months in tents and communally in a shack in northern California in addition to the occasional rest stop I'm sure while touring with bands like Bonnie Prince Billy, White Magic, Women & Children, Papa M, Joanna Newsome, Vetiver, Entrance, Gojogo, Daniel Higgs' Magic Alphabet, Lungfish, and their UK debut at the Slint-curated All Tomorrow's Parties.
As I said, not usually my thing, but this song is quite irresistible. For a modern reference picture Zero 7 mixing it up with Spiritualized, Slowdive, Native American Tee-Pees and some peyote!
