Smoky Atmospherics

by | Jul 15, 2006

Brightblack Morning Light is a hypnotic outfit out of Humboldt County, California via rural Alabama. Far from typical rock stars, Brightblack’s Rachael Hughes and Nathan Shineywater live in a teepee during the summer months.

On the Matador label, Brightblack comes from the Moorcheeba, Mazzy Star and My Bloody Valentine schools of musical thought.

The Fader is running a feature on the band, including a slide show with intimate photos by Theo Rigby. In addition, San Francisco Weekly and Pitchfork have intersting articles on the enigmatic group.
