Blackout Beach
Light Flows the Putrid Dawn

SAB006 | CD, DL

Blackout Beach is Carey Mercer of Frog Eyes, Blue Pine, Swan Lake & etc., operating in solo mode. Like his work with Frog Eyes, Mercer’s solo recordings dwell in a land all their own, with his unique vocal and lyrical approach very much at the fore. A fourteen-part fluidsong cycle, Light Flows The Putrid Dawn finds Mercer in rare form, with intense, miniature epics that slowly build, swell and expand to the brink of collapse.
