Holy psych!

Blackwater Holylight is not a band name that trips of the tongue all that easily. It sounds like a doom metal band name too. This lot come from Portland, OR. and while there are musical infuences galore in their sound, you can't go far wrong if you wanted to just call them 'psych'. In fact, their record label describes them thus: "Heavy psych riffs, gothic drama, folk-rock vibes, garage-sludge and soaring melodies." Yup, there's a lot going on in there.

Their self-titled debut album has just come out and it's a bit of a treat. Think September Girls, only more spacey and ethereal. Here's some footage of them playing Babies, a track from the album, live. Loving this lots at the mo.

  1. WOW!!!
    Thanks a million for introducing me to to this amazing shit, I am 100% going to order the vinyl via Bandcamp - this is so right up my alley I can't even describe it. Once again showing that blogs have taken-over for radio-stations when it comes to introducing folks to new music. Cheers!!!!
