Brooklyn's A STORM OF LIGHT is back with their second full-length and the follow-up to 2008's And We Wept the Black Ocean Within. The record's power comes from a dense melding of melodies, moods, and textures. As heavy and cataclysmic as fans would expect, the devastating effects rely on interwoven melodies and graceful shifts in timbre instead of a stream of identikit riffs. A Storm of Light is comprised of JOSH GRAHAM (RED SPAROWES), DOMENIC SEITA (TOMBS, ASEA), ANDY RICE, and JOEL HAMILTON. On Forgive Us Our Trespasses, they are joined by a host of carefully chosen collaborators that includes vocalist NERISSA CAMPBELL (PRIMITIVE NORTH) and JARBOE (SWANS, WORLD OF SKIN, J2); the otherworldly spoken word segues of LYDIA LUNCH, and the mournful strings of CARLA KIHLSTEDT (BOOK OF KNOTS, SLEEPYTIME GORILLA MUSEUM) and MARIKA HUGHES (2 FOOT YARD) only enhance the richness. Double-vinyl to be released later in the year.
Also available: FORGIVE US OUR TRESPASSES (2LP) (LP).
