Synopsis

Album Description
"Haunting", "ethereal", and "oozing with soul" are just a few of the words used to describe the music of these Alabama-Kentucky-to-Northern California transplants. Backed by a crack ensemble, this duo's transcendent brand of super-spooky, carefully crafted music for many moods is the genre-blurring experience of the decade. "Brightblack's free form blues sound transcends marketing, name-dropping, and hustling, taking us for a blindfolded dive into a live river. When you close your eyes, separating yourself from your immediate surroundings, and hear Rabob's (Rachael's) moody keys and experience the slow syrup rhythms of Nabob's (Nathan's) 'Bear Momma' slide guitar, you find yourself lost in an unpretentious, unmaterialistic world" - Soma.

Inhale to the brightblack morning light.....

"...stoned..that's the word I'd use to describe this album....very, very blissfully stoned........Some of it sort of sounds like fleetwood mac's 'albatross' played at 15rpm...mixed in with a bit of ry cooder 'Paris Texas' soundtrack .......with a bit of something that could be approximated to the blues as played by a narcoleptic......at any minute you're expecting them to sort of stop playing for 30 seconds, then wake up and start playing again....There's something a bit film soundtracky about it all...but art house film soundtracky.....It's also got that sixties vibe ...but its still wholly original and unlike any thing you'll hear this year. Particularly when the brass starts up ...you just don't expect it to be there, but it works...."
Boring, sure, but ELECTRIFYINGLY boring

"Southern rock-dub would be the most suiting genre, I think. I find it genuinely daring of them to ooze such a slow groove for so long. A little gimmicky...maybe that, too. You won't want to listen to this all the time, but definitely on the mark when golden light rakes through the room."
Not bad, but still boring

"not a whole lot happens on this album. it has moments of groove and soul and cool, bits and pieces that sound good and feel good, but between them is a whole lot of filler. it's not like the bad is even noodling, they're simply playing the same groove for a long time (or what seems like a long time) without taking it anywhere. tension never builds, so there is never any release. neither is it a constant drone with microscopic variations and changes. it's not interesting white noise. this is music for stoner elevators.

i can't say i dislike this album, but it doesn't do anything for me either. i'd prefer to give it something less than three but more than two. the playing is competent, but nothing exciting. the best part is probably the glasses that come with the package. i like seeing everything with rainbows. at least then something changes."
