Strange Lights

Light Bright
Self-released

On its bio, Strange Lights, a duo that hails from the town of Crestone, cites influences like Television, the Flaming Lips and R.E.M. Anyone who digs any of those acts, however, would probably steer clear of Strange Lights' third album, Light Bright. Apart from the incongruous comparison, most of the dozen songs here have nearly the exact same molasses-dragging tempos, as well as similar guitar strumming and picking patterns that meander endlessly. While singer/guitarist Lonny Roth and bassist/singer Deb Zazzo may have good intentions — especially since they've been playing together for a decade now — their singing and songwriting fall flat here. If anything, this disc could function as a half-baked soundtrack for a major doobage session, but otherwise, Light Bright is pretty damn dull.
