This White Light = Jen Wood + mems of Goatsnake, Sunn O))), Pelican (listen)
This White Light is a new band with some familiar faces: Greg Anderson (co-founder of Southern Lord Records and member of Goatsnake, Sunn O))), and more), Bryan Herweg (of Pelican), Jade Devitt (who played in Engine Kid with Greg Anderson), and vocalist Jen Wood (of '90s Kill Rock Stars band Tattle Tale, The Postal Service's "Nothing Better," her solo career, and more). With instrumentalists that have a metal/hardcore pedigree and a singer from a more indie rock background, you might be wondering how it all comes together, and well, basically everyone plays to their individual strengths. We're premiering the band's demo for "Winter Flowers," which is part sludge metal, part post-rock, and has Jen Wood's crystal-clear vocals leading the way. This should appeal to metal and indie fans alike, or just anyone who likes well-executed underground rock music. Listen below.
This White Light are also planning to record with Josh Homme behind the boards next week.
