Black Forest Fire

Pretty sure I blogged this earlier when I first started listening, but now the review's up at Blurt, so I'm posting again.

Transit of Venus

Black Forest Fire weaves brooding, reverb-drenched drones around soft melodies, well in line with the tradition of fellow psychedelic Austinites like Black Angels, Experimental Aircraft and Explosions in the Sky. Guitarist Jay C. Tonne and drummer Karen Skloss trade vocals, with Tonne's voice high and surprisingly pop-leaning on slouching-towards-oblivion ramps like "Tell It To Sara" and Skloss' ethereal in "August Spring"'s twitchy daydream.
