Brightblack - Ala.Cali.Tucky (2003)


Previously on OPIUM HUM:
Brightblack Morning Light - Motion to Rejoin (2008)

Languid, smoked-out country rock that's as fitting for late nights as it is for Sunday morning comedowns. Country slowcore, if you will. If you're familiar with the two records they put out after adding "Morning Light" to the end of their name: it's kinda like that, except with more acoustic slide guitar, pedal steel, and two Oldham brothers (yes, one of them's Will) in tow.

Track listing:
1. New Mexico
2. True Bright Blossom
3. Own Time
4. Better Days
5. Old Letters
6. Wildshiney Stars
7. Red
8. Ocean Blue

    1. Hey, I'm happy to hear it. If you don't mind me asking, does she just like the record, or was she somehow involved in making it? Either way, cheers to happy wives!

    3. Gotcha. I agree, it really felt fitting for yesterday, for whatever reason. I write most of my posts in advance and publish them whenever I feel like it, but yesterday, I had put this on while I was drinking my morning coffee and the sun was coming up, and it was just so perfect, I wanted to share the experience.

    1. Hey, good to hear from you, it's been a while. Those albums are great. Weirdly enough, my favorite of the three is the one I haven't posted.

    2. Totally agree. The self-titled Brightblack Morning Light album is absolutely perfect. Pure haze vibes. You ever read or hear any interviews with Nabob and Raybob? They're real out there, man.
