We work, we worship the Earth, we make sand paintings that blow away, we hallucinate and vision. We formed in numerous tents sprinkled in the forest, not out of spite. We think the American West is beautiful. ND Shineywater is from the lovely American South, Alabama, yet has lived years among American Western forests & mountains instead of the city.

Brightblack Morning Light (formerly Brightblack) is a band based in New Mexico, specializing in permutations of folk rock and psychedelic music. The group is based around the core duo of Rachael Hughes and Nathan Shineywater.(Wikipedia Brightblack Morning Light)

Motion to Rejoin

Pitchfork:Album review here
It's tempting to consider the title of Brightblack Morning Light's third album, Motion to Rejoin, a plea to return to a society they've left behind. The notoriously itinerant duo called Alabama and California home, but since their eponymous sophomore album for Matador put them on the map in 2006, they've moved off the grid to a New Mexico hut powered by a few solar panels. One listen to the ritually narcotic Motion to Rejoin, however, signals that all manner of shaman/hippie/Bohemian trappings are still very much the order of the day.

Though it's easy to think of Brightblack as texturally homogeneous purveyors of mood music, revisiting Brightblack Morning Light reminds that Naybob Shineywater and Rachael Hughes have a defter sonic touch than they're often given credit for: songs experience movements, buoyed by the odd piano or horn section, and contain actual riffs. On Motion to Rejoin, Brightblack's compositional subtlety manifests itself in overt nods to American musics: shades of gospel, soul, and even funk are all marinated in Brightblack's low, flat tones. Hughes' thumbing Rhodes lines and Shineywater's cattail guitar remain the dominant elements of every song, but Motion to Rejoin is more tremulous than its predecessor, the same way a high-zoom photo might be blurred with a slight shake of the camera.

18. Your lyrics use simple, direct language, almost like prayers or incantations. Do you think you your songs in this sort of way? Or do you have different reasons for using the language you do?
I don't like the English language very much. Yes, I consider these words to be incantations, as they are influenced by reading & listening to Native American folk tales, as well as my own relations to wild places and wild life.
