iTunes Review

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.

Customer Reviews

Not too shabby

I'm a huge fan of their first two and had high expectation on this one. Brightblack delivered the album full of drowsy jams I was hoping for and in that regard I could not be happier. They still sound like what more 60's music might have if downers and blues had been the drug of choice over hallucinogens. One things that bothers me though. The production on the album seems a little weird. No matter how good the head phones or speakers I play Motion to Rejoin in are, it still sounds like poor quality mp3's playing too-loud through laptop speakers. It's especially apparent on the vocals. I don't know if that was on purpose or not, but it's kind of annoying. Gripes aside, the album is way to good to be passed up and I doubt its leaving my rotation anytime soon. If you need proof, grab up Another Reclaimation.

Maximum Chill

Cool, soothing, way out in the zone music. These tunes lose a lot as lower quality audio files; and even more when listened to with earbuds. Buy the CD and the one they did before this and listen to them on a good quality CD player and amplifier at medium-high volume with speakers that cost more than $500. They should go well with various intoxicants.

Incredibly Chill

Brightblack Morning Light's music is probably as chill as it gets, it sets a certain relaxing and atmospheric mood that is indeniable. Their sound is a little hard to describe, but it is mindblowing, I can't really think of anything like it. As far as evolution, this album pretty much sticks to the formula of the last one, slow paced, reverb drenched, hushed vocals and spooky organs... the songs are even longer this time though, making way for some spacey jams. This music isn't perfect for all times of the day but it is unbeatable when you want to slow down and enjoy the grass grow. Stand out tracks are Hologram Buffalo, A Rainbow Aims, and Past a Weatherbeaten Fencepost, even though all the songs are very very chill.
