Brightblack Morning Light
Nabob and Rabob return, mellow as ever and smoldering in the desert sun. Their third album Motion To Rejoin still maintains the "smoky lounge in the middle of the forest" vibe that's permeated much of their other work and though its not exactly a huge departure, the fact is that their sound still remains so intoxicatingly natural that change would only come as a disappointment. The band do play up a bit of the southern soul touches in their music on Motion but it's the core swells of Rachael's organ and Nathan's smoke stained vocals that remain the focus. Ever the poster children for alternative energy and unencumbered living (you know hardcore hippies) the duo powered the recording sessions with solar panels, which all kidding aside and coupled with their penchant for carbon offsetting while touring, makes them one impressively conscious band. Green politics notwithstanding, Motion is yet another testament to Brightblack's prowess and is definitely inching up my list of albums of the year.
