Under an ocean of sky

123. Brightblack - "True Bright Blossom" (form the Ala.Cali.Tucky album, Galaxia Records, 2004)

The New Mexico hippies now known as Brightblack Morning Light have put out better albums since Ala.Cali.Tucky, but none of the songs on them have, for me, approached the forest-psychedelic majesty of this song. The woozy effect they get by extending certain beats is perfect. The roomy, live-yet-magical-sounding production is perfect. The build to the release achieved when they finally give in and sing the title phrase, as if performing the True Bright Blossom[ing] of the song - it's perfect too.
