Boomkat Product Review:
Lightning Dust is an offshoot project from Canadian rockers Black Mountain. Based around the duo of Amber Webber and Joshua Wells, this band takes an altogether softer edged slant on the Vancouver group's thumping retro rock. You still feel as if all these songs are rooted in '70s sensibilities however, and that the likes of 'Antonia Jane' could have been plucked straight from the easy-going FM rock of that era. After the Suicide-influenced electronic urgency of 'I Knew', 'Dreamer' represents the album's most coherent early highlight, spilling forth with violin and cello stabs while Webber supplies quivering, hyperactive vocals that really take hold of the song. 'Waiting On The Sun To Rise' is another winner - a Mazzy Star-like ballad, dipped in mellotron strings and reverb-smudged tambourine splashes, leading up to a brilliant cover of Budgie's 'Wondering What Everyone Knows'. Despite being wedged in at the end of the album this turns out to be one of the most immediate, poignant things here, once again bringing the best out of Webber's tremulous voice.
