Black Mountain cohorts Amber Webber and Joshua Wells find a bare-bones niche with Lightning Dust, escaping the comforts of their familiar instruments and writing styles. Spacious arrangements and Webber’s smokey, weathered vocals create songs that creep into your bones with a haunting chill.
Their heart-pounding narratives move from stringed ballads and swirling acid-laced folk to mid-tempo strollers and haunting dirges, complemented by airy drums and eerie keyboards. It’s a hypnotic, uplifting mélange of sounds and senses; songs that feel more unearthed than constructed.
