Listeners of Sound On Sight Radio know that we love to play music in between film reviews. We often receive emails with listeners complimenting the music we play, and usually people ask for the names of the artists and songs. So based on listener feedback, I’ve decided to post something new on the site. Welcome to Ricky D’s track of the day. Every day, I’ll select one of my new favorite songs and once in a while I’ll play a classic, but always something most people probably haven’t heard of. In other words, I won’t be choosing anything too mainstream.
Today’s track Listened On comes from Lightening Dust, a side project of Amber Webber and Joshua Wells, both members of Black Mountain. There is sound is much softer and more melodic than Black Mountain’s hard rock, but it makes for a great listen on a stressful rainy day. The band released its self-titled debut album on Jagjaguwar in 2007 and another album, Infinite Light, was released in August 2009. It was recently announced that the band have been chosen by Matt Groening to perform at the edition of the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival he is curating in May 2010 in Minehead, England.
