Song of the Day - April 14, 2006

I stumbled upon Bright Channel while perusing recent new releases, only to find that their latest was missing from Rhapsody, but their debut self-titled album was available, so I gave it a listen. I was blown away with the first track "Final Stretch." It starts out with a heavily distorted bass line, drums, and a guitar sound as if from outer space. The song rockets through space slowly throttling the intensity until they reach warp speed. Bright Channel's sound is best described as a hallucinogenic cocktail composed of equal parts Joy Division, Swervedriver,and Mogwai. A little research uncovered that Steve Albini's engineering talents were put to work on the album and that they will be opening for Dinosaur Jr. in Boulder, CO. tomorrow. Two very good indications of the quality of their music. Click here to listen.
