Album Review

Having toured with Arcade Fire and LCD Soundsystem, and keeping a busy recording and performance schedule with bands from Beirut to Coldplay, versatile brass and wind player Kelly Pratt has had little time to focus on his own musical musings. His eccentric indie pop outfit Team B was the result of guerrilla-style laptop recording sessions crammed between tour dates, but with new project Bright Moments he finally had the time to craft a record without a schedule or the other trappings of being a traveling musician. Recorded in winter 2010 one track at a time at Pratt's Brooklyn apartment, Pratt — with help from folks like Nick Petree and Paul Collins and Perrin Cloutier, Beirut's rhythm section and accordionist, respectively — offered Bright Moments' debut, Natives.

Pratt had previously stepped out as leader of Team B, but life on the road restricted recording to whatever he could accomplish on a laptop in his hotel room between shows. Wanting to create at his own pace and without the other limitations of a tour schedule, he formed Bright Moments and by winter 2010 began recording track-by-track by himself in his Brooklyn...
