Black Light is psychedelic lo-fi velvety indie art rock created in relaxed home studios. The catalogue comprises many full length albums, with recordings progressing from four track analog to multi-track digital production.   The instrumentation is implemented with voice, guitars, drums, keyboards, percussion, found sounds and samples.

The melodic rhythms are contrasted by edgy lead sounds accompanied by dry walkie-talkie  or echoplex vocals. Contrasting instrumental arrangements vary from spaghetti western themes to experimental noise collages.

The unique stream of conscious style of recording and layering, mostly by bud, invites the beauty and color of spontaneity in an impressionistic form of music and lyrics.



Formerly from Dallas, Texas, Black Light is based in Crested Butte, Colorado. Inspirations span many generations  from  the  slacker crunch lo-fi west coast, the new york undgerground, the jangle south to the bluesy western tejas.
