Artist: Lightning Dust, Album: Infinite Light, Song: Never Seen

Lightning Dust are another great band from the Vancouver, rock n' roll family that brought you Black Mountain, Blood Meridian and the Pink Mountaintops.  They are Amber Webber and Joshua Wells.  Both of them are also members of Black Mountain.  Joshua is also in the band, Blood Meridian (see blog 10/4/10).  I'm not sure you can call this band or any of the other bands, side projects.  This group of talented musicians seem to operate in a musical commune of sorts with no artistic boundaries and a completely free spirit.  Lightning Dust released their self titled debut in 2007.  Infinite Light is their sophomore release from 2009.  Amber's vocals are similar to Cat Power and no more evident than on this wonderful track entitled, Never Seen.  The band is signed to the Jagjaguwar label and you can follow them at  They will be touring Canada, the U.S. and England over the summer/fall months.  You can purchase the album, Infinite Light, on Itunes.  You can watch the video for the song, Never Seen, on You Tube (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
