From the desert mountains of New Mexico, Brightblack Morning Light embraces the psychedelic moment with a cosmic blend of folk rock, spirit anthems and freak exploration.
On the eve of Brightblack Morning Light’s first Australian tour, the band’s ever-mystic founder Nathan Shineywater has announced that this will be the last Brightblack Morning Light tour and the debut of his new musical identity, Berry Shadows.
Mistletone will release an exclusive 7″ vinyl Berry Shadows single, featuring Shineywater and collaborators Hope Sandoval, Colm O’Ciosoig (My Bloody Valentine/Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions) and Daniel Higgs (Lungfish). Don’t miss Brightblack Morning Light with special guest Rio En Medio.
Rio En Medio is the pseudonym of singer and baritone ukulelist Danielle Stech-Homsy. Born in the high desert of New Mexico, Danielle began to record and perform her own compositions. Working independently and in secret, she created a collection of collage-like songs incorporating found sounds and electronic programming, lifting texts from disparate sources, and evoking traditional/folk song structure, themes and melodies. As chance would have it, a friend passed on the unique, hand-made record to Devendra Banhart who soon requested to release it on his label.
Since her debut release in early 2007, Danielle has performed and worked with artists such as Grizzly Bear, CocoRosie, Patrick Wolf and Vashti Bunyan. Her delicate, fragmented songs feature a sparse and haunting trio of baritone ukulele, subtly harmonized vocals and electronic or sampled soundscapes, evoking the spun poetry of ancient folk lullabies. One more compelling reason not to miss the Brightblack shows!
