Friday music blogging: Lightning Dust
Last year I FMB’d Black Mountain, a druggy, bell-bottomed Canadian indie band that does fantastic stoner rock.
Two members of that band, Amber Webber and Joshua Wells, formed a side project a few years ago called Lightning Dust. They have a new album out, Infinite Light, and it’s well worth your time.
Where Black Mountain lay on the psychedelia pretty heavy, Lighting Dust is a bit more open and airy, more accessible, slightly more theatrical. It hangs together because of Webber’s haunting, shivering voice, one of the most memorable voices in popular music right now.
This song is called “I Knew.”
