  • Personnel: Meara OReilly, Ann McCrary, Regina McCrary (vocals); Windy Dankoff (flute, bass flute); Matt Henry Cunitz (celesta, pump organ, Mellotron); Jessica Ruffins (bass guitar); Otto Hauser (drums, percussion).
  • Arrangers: Nathan Shineywater; R. Hughes.
  • On their self-titled debut for Matador Records, Brightblack Morning Light offered an American roots-infused take on My Bloody Valentine's warm drones, cutting through the maelstrom with touches of gospel, country, and soul. On MOTION TO REJOIN, the New Mexico-via-Alabama duo of Rachael Hughes and Nathan Shineywater continue to gaze not at their shoes, but rather at the star-flecked big sky that hangs over the American landscape. "Hologram Buffalo" and "Oppressions Each" sound like codeine-soaked Stax ballads heard from beyond the next mesa, while "Summer Hoof" is arguably the one and only ambient soul-jazz jam ever recorded. The duo owe an undeniable debt to Spiritualized, yet Brightblack Morning Light also dig through the dirt to get at the original source.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.73) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "At 50 minutes, MOTION TO REJOIN's jams drift off into the ether, but that's their whole charm: Surrender to the flow, and you'll never know where the time went."

Spin (p.102) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The minimal, murkily hypnotic, Fender Rhodes-heavy groove of 2006's self titled breakthrough gives way to more discernible melodies and socially conscious lyrics, buoyed by soulful horns and backup vocals."

The Wire (p.56) - "'Past A Weatherbeaten Fencepost' comes complete with faux-vinyl crackle -- but long before then the Southern eco-hippy voodoo will have you hooked and supine, and all other music will sound absurdly hectic."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.104) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's fascinating music...extremely psychedelic, with gospelly backing singers, flutes and guitars reaching the listener through a reverb-heavy haze."

Blender (Magazine) (pp.78-79) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[G]orgeously narcotic. Skinny-dipped in reverb, Rachael Hughes and Nathan Shineywater sing-sigh over a psychedelic version of '70s soul, full of gently loping electric keyboards and cloudy horn charts."
