Brightblack discography Just prior to this album, Brightblack were known as Rainywood, and under that name they released a split single with Bonny Prince Billy (aka Will Oldham) and an excellent -- though critically ignored -- self-released full-length CD. Soon after this release on Galaxia, they changed (or extended) their name to Brightblack Morning Light and signed to Matador Records. Named for the locations they called home and where they recorded the album (Alabama, California, and Kentucky [they recorded at Paul Oldham's studio in Louisville]) Ala.Cali.Tucky is, perhaps understandably, the sound of a band in flux and still finding its voice. The music is almost uniformly slow-paced -- frustratingly so at times. You find yourself wishing they would break out of their languor from time to time and really cut loose. But instead, acoustic and slide guitars lazily interweave in a drunken sway with sparse drums. And while Nathan Shineywater and Rachael Hughes (the two principle members of Brightblack) harmonize beautifully, the lyrics seem half formed and tossed off. But, occasionally, as on "True Bright Blossom" and "Own Time," this unhurried, ambling style rises above its merely laid-back hippy-vibe aspirations to create a kind of hazy, dreamy majesty that brings to mind the best work of that ultimate slow-poke band, Low. In fact, Brightblack could maybe be best described as Low with a Southern accent, as if Low were from Alabama instead of Minnesota, and instead of Mormons they were members of the Rainbow Tribe and Greenpeace. Remember, both oppressive heat and bitter cold can make you want to move at a snail's pace. ~ Jason Nickey Personnel: Rachael Hughes (vocals, Fender Rhodes piano); Neal Morgan (vocals, drums).

Brightblack Morning Light Brightblack Morning Light Vinyl LP (2006)
Vinyl Record Check Availability  Details
Brightblack CD discography Between breathy slowcore vocals, loping keyboard blues, subdued guitars, and the occasional flute, the genre-bending Brightblack Morning Light is a tough band to nail down. With their free-form blues space-outs, they're not quite freak-folk, but they're too experimental to be a jam band. And then they'll turn around and play a song like the lovely "Miwok Shapes," with ethereal piano shining above an undulating electric guitar. Two Southerners now based in Northern California, Rachel Hughes and Nathan Shineywater (keyboards and guitar respectively) seem less interested in fitting into any particular form than they are in developing the unique sound they've invented. Hypnotic, soulful, and slightly unnerving, these are songs that keep moving because they're never on perfectly solid ground.
