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.
