Black Light is psychedelic lo-fi velvety indie art rock created in relaxed home studios. The catalogue comprises fourteen 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 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 one artist, 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 from many generations including Dave Brubeck through Autolux. The first recordings recall the Pixies and Replacements, while the current releases reflect sounds from The Velvet Underground to Sonic Youth, with a dash of the southern accents of Texas.
