Pinning down the Bright Light Social Hour’s sound is like describing the
contents of a blender on puree. The
group evokes the spirit of the ’70s with shards of Southern Garage Rock,
Psychedelic Soul, electric R&B/Funk, Indie Pop and thunderously
elemental Hard Rock, represented by acid-washed church and Farfisa
organ, searing slide guitar and chunky riffage, all in the service of songs that are
compellingly contemporary and utterly appealing.
