The Bright Light Social Hour & Israel Nash
Reviewed by Jim Caligiuri, Fri., Nov. 25, 2016
Unexpected collaboration making complete sense, local psychedelic rockers the Bright Light Social Hour meet local psychedelic roots rocker Israel Nash for three songs addressing the toxic politics of undocumented immigrants. "Lupita" essays a couple looking for a better life and the hardships they endure over a soaring musical bed that makes it hard to tell where Nash begins and TBLSH takes over. "The Forest" simmers and haunts, and ultimately evokes Pink Floyd, leaving one hoping these two Austin acts remain Neighbors.
