Previous to this recording, while BBML toured Europe, singer Naybob Shineywater sang each show with an arrowhead in his mouth. Why? To let his own sung words & breathe touch this stone before european ears could hear them.
"I was not singing for war, but to engage the spirit of the maker of the arrowhead itself, to offer up Peace, that his warrior ... Read more in Amazon's Brightblack Morning Light Store

5.0 out of 5 stars ...but do owls use blankets? 26 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
What a find! The last album that got me this enthused was Wilco's "A Ghost Is Born". This sounds like Spiritualized doing Muddy Waters covers and it works a treat. Particular gems are the deeply bluesey "Friend of Time" and the acid-fried doo-wop of "Black Feather Wishes Rise". In response to the previous review: yes, it is "samey" but with music of this calibre that can only be a good thing... in my opinion it's perfectly judged. Languid, absorbing and utterly hypnotic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Light Less Ordinary. 7 Dec 2007
By William J. Walker VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
OK, descriptions of this band, that I have seen, have concentrated on the languid, laid back nature of the music. Some have tagged them as 'stoner-rock', and its hard to dispute that, especially as my copy came with free 'prismatic glasses' that add an interesting rainbow effect to any light source viewed through them and, if that weren't enough of a hint, are decorated with cannabis leaf symbols.

This is somewhat misleading as there is more than enough to occupy the listener who may wish to enjoy it 'straight'. This is a brilliant listen whatever the state of mind you might choose audition it in. It reminds me, a little, of Galaxy 500 and even John Mayall's 'Laurel Canyon' or Can's "Future Days" album, but the amazing thing is that the music is infused with a sinuous funky rhythm reminiscent of Sly and the Family Stone(only slowed down, right down)so sure its mellow and relaxing etc, but if you tune into it, it engages, there is a lot going on. Rather than lying back in a darkened room' I actually felt like getting up and dancing(or is that sway gently)to some of the tracks on this record!
A 'track by track' would be pointless as this is definitely an 'album experience' and a very good one.

This album surprised me, I hadn't expected it to be this good, it's certainly worth a gamble.

2.0 out of 5 stars An excuse to drift . . . 21 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you were looking for an album which when plugged into, gave you a sound basis to forget where you are, lie on the beach and just flow with the sounds then you may well have it here.

I tried to imagine what use this one could be, and for me and i got Holiday Get-away, on the beach, in the sun, eyes closed and away you go, it feels almost like musical therapy you can get lost in.

My only real comPlaint is it gets "samey" and unless you plan to "get lost" for a while or fall asleep to it, or have it as a pleasant background, you may find yourself looking elsewhere.

Hard one to nail down, but good to drift to.

5.0 out of 5 stars inhale to the brightblack morning light..... 15 Dec 2006
By N. goodey - Published on
Format:Audio CD
...stoned..that's the word I'd use to describe this album....very, very blissfully stoned........Some of it sort of sounds like fleetwood mac's 'albatross' played at 15rpm...mixed in with a bit of ry cooder 'Paris Texas' soundtrack .......with a bit of something that could be approximated to the blues as played by a any minute you're expecting them to sort of stop playing for 30 seconds, then wake up and start playing again....There's something a bit film soundtracky about it all...but art house film soundtracky.....It's also got that sixties vibe ...but its still wholly original and unlike any thing you'll hear this year. Particularly when the brass starts up just don't expect it to be there, but it works....

4.0 out of 5 stars boring, sure, but ELECTRIFYINGLY boring 8 Aug 2006
By D. Hackbarth - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Southern rock-dub would be the most suiting genre, I think. I find it genuinely daring of them to ooze such a slow groove for so long. A little gimmicky...maybe that, too. You won't want to listen to this all the time, but definitely on the mark when golden light rakes through the room.

3.0 out of 5 stars not bad, but still boring 15 Dec 2006
By starzero - Published on
Format:Audio CD
not a whole lot happens on this album. it has moments of groove and soul and cool, bits and pieces that sound good and feel good, but between them is a whole lot of filler. it's not like the bad is even noodling, they're simply playing the same groove for a long time (or what seems like a long time) without taking it anywhere. tension never builds, so there is never any release. neither is it a constant drone with microscopic variations and changes. it's not interesting white noise. this is music for stoner elevators.

i can't say i dislike this album, but it doesn't do anything for me either. i'd prefer to give it something less than three but more than two. the playing is competent, but nothing exciting. the best part is probably the glasses that come with the package. i like seeing everything with rainbows. at least then something changes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Like a slow-mo Morcheeba, but more bluesy and less corny 21 Feb 2007
By Patrick G. Varine - Published on
Format:Audio CD
That's about the best description I can think of for this album: a slow motion Morcheeba without the supercorny lyrics.

Elsewhere, I read a review of this album that described it thusly: 'If you're the sort of person who can sit down and listen to three 20-minute versions of the Dead's 'Dark Star,' this is for you.' Being a huge Dead fan, I might take three 'Dark Stars' instead, but I can see where they're coming from.

I get the whole sound-collage, songs-blending-together-pastiche thing, but how about a song in a different key now and again? In the same way that Dylan does recastings of his songs live, Brightblack seems to be co-opting James Browns' technique of working a nice studio jam and doing it to death.

And death might also be an apt description. These songs all move in sloooow time - there is one mild exception, but I wouldn't exactly call it upbeat - and I could see any one of them serving as the perfect score for a suicide scene or slo-mo sex scene in a movie (also, coincidentally, some of them work rather well as striptease songs, with their bluesy licks and heartbeat drums).

I'm a bit conflicted about the record as a whole. I like the first song so much, but then so much of the album plays like an extension OF that song...

So, like the Dead's 43-minute 'Dark Star' from a '72 Philly Spectrum show (also, this album is just about 45 mins. long), it's a beautiful, roots-blues excursion that plays for just about the right length of time. Good stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars WYRDE CHILD OF DR JOHN AND CAPT BEEFHEART 23 Sep 2008
By W. T. Hoffman - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is basically an advancement of the esthetic behind that whole LOW MUSIC movement. In fact, there has always been bands, that worked with this musical ideology. I'm talking about very low, tribal drumming, lots of drones, slide guitar, deep bass playing, and whispery, freaked out lyrics that function not unlike druidic chants at a festival in honor of Morpheus. At times, with the two female soul singers behind him, you might think you were listening to the early NIGHT TRIPPER albums that Dr. John recorded when he was still fun. Then, you hear the slide guitar, and you are reminded of STICKY FINGERS era stones, with Mick Taylor's slide work, played over the low, thunderous drum and bass attack of Bill and Charlie. Or even the slide guitar of Duane Allman, when the Allman brothers still were playing some deep southern soul, and jazz, before their double tragedy. Next thing you know, you are hearing influences from to LOW to MORPHINE (the band after they got the keyboard player, and began to study those subsonic notes that blew my woofers!) Just to keep it earthy, there's even a layer of shamanistic tribal, Indian drumming on a lot of the cuts. obviously, a lot of different influences are converging here, and making that kind of fusion work, is a tricky business. The danger is that the band could end up either copying their formula for this unique sound, or reducing the fusion of influences, to make for a clearer, more mass appealing product. Hopefully, they will stay sincere, and bands this underground usually DO stay loyal to their philosopies. In any case, this band sounds as if they are at the top of their game artistically, and they know their game quite while. So, if you are after a nice, SLOW AND LOW sound, with a jazzy liquid swirl of molasses sweet weed haze and codiene cough syrup abysses, then this is for you. It's not that you need to be on that kind of alchemical fusion of drugs to get this album. The album's artistic drive appears to imitate that earthquake low chant/drone sound, bound with a "FESTIVAL IN HONOR OF MORPHEUS" vibe. Just relax and go with it. Approximately 78% of those who listen to this album just 2 or 3 times, become hopelessly addicted to the album. I know I hear it almost every day myself, but I can stop anytime. Before you know it, you'll be turning on your friends to the band. You might even be able to recall correctly the bands groovatious psychedelic name without reading the CD cover. If you need a supply of this album, here's the place to score it. Keep it cool, dude.
