Night sky full of rainbows

Brightblack Morning Light, Brightblack Morning Light (Matador 2006)
Perfect album for stewing in your own juices in 98-degree weather -- no way to cool off so just embrace it and melt. The most frequent comparisons are pretty accurate, Mazzy Star or the Stones' strung-out blues phase ("I just Want to See His Face"). Aside from the Rhodes I think Brightblack's secret weapon is the drumming ... skittering patterns on "Everybody Daylight," backward looped snares on "We Share Our Blanket With the Owl" ... simplicity and repetition casts a spell, but there's more going on if you dive down deeper. Vinyl version has the non-CD track "Miwok Shapes" plus a free, password-protected digital download of the album from Matador (wish more record companies would do this).
