Artist: Brightblack Morning Light Track: "Everybody Daylight" Album: Brightblack Morning Light


I've already written about this band (as in "loose collection of hippies"), but it's driving season, and this is the best record I've ever played while driving. I don't drive all that often, but I know what rocks in the car.

Closer to sustained, repetitive riffs than actual songs, this record borrows a lot from the dub aesthetic (though performed live), meaning that the band sinks deeper and deeper and darker and rawer into its own trenches of melody, rhythm.

This is the opening track, and others are similarly. So smooth, in fact, that you won't hardly notice the passing of time.
