EDITORS’ NOTES

Picking up where their 2006 self-titled release left off, Brightblack Morning Light offers another collection of dreamy, repetitive grooves set to tempos ranging from slow to slower. Guitar, keyboards, and minimal percussion make up most of the instrumentation, along with some subtle saxophone, trombone, and clarinet mixed in here and there for texture. The band clearly expects patience from their listeners, and they reward it with an album of ethereal, atmospheric tunes (or arguably one long psychedelic jam) that unfold at their own languid pace, revealing multiple pleasures along the way. Though the lyrics are largely unintelligible amidst the swirling keyboards, heavy reverb, and other studio enhancements, the hazy vocal harmonies work beautifully and add much to the drowsy vibe. Those searching for aural hypnosis will find it in Motion to Rejoin.
