Brightblack Morning Light

Rachael Hughes and Nathan Shineywater

The 2nd Matador album (and 3rd overall) from the 'Bama/Arcata, CA spawned / New Mexico-based duo of Rachael Hughes and Nathan Shineywater is one of the more all-encompassing listening experiences you'll have this year or any other. There's no bin in your record store marked "understated intensity", but perhaps there oughta be. Calling Brightblack Morninglight "America's finest psychelic/soul/dub/folk/experimental band" is a rather trite way of dealing with the enormity of an album this beautiful and haunting, but that's what do around here, we deal in slogans. Theirs is a carefully crafted hybrid that sounds as instantly familiar as it is unprecedented, and in 'Motion To Rejoin', they might well have conjured the perfect Saturday night and Sunday morning album all on the same disc.
