old: Lightning Dust "Listened On"

"You Feel Your Mind Start To Lose Control"
Soaked with rain waiting for the B48 to take me home, I was pleasantly relieved when Lightning Dust's "Listened On" came on shuffle. I often find myself going back to this tune, which I've never found the right moment to post on, as it's one of those essential slow motion soundtracks, perfect for rainy afternoons on public transportation, or walks through desolate parks when all you hear is the faint sound of a siren far off in the distance. Lightning Dust, which is Amber Webber and Joshua Wells from dark psyche rockers Black Mountain, play the sort of gothic folk you'd want to hear towards the end of a seedy noir film, the type where you're never sure who you're rooting for, if anyone. JagJaguwar hasn't had any news on the band in almost two years, though I've heard through the grapevine that they've been prepping the follow up to their ghostly debut. Recorded in "a dank cave and a bright blue house", Lightning Dust is the perfect companion for a lonely afternoons, as it provides just the right amount of sadness and comfort to get you through even the toughest of times. For fans of Marissa Nadler, Mazzy Star & Sharon Van Etten.
