All Music Guide:
Yet another darkly psychedelic project associated with the Vancouver space rock ensemble Black Mountain, Lightning Dust formed in the early 2000s with Amber Webber and Joshua Wells. The duo released its folky self-titled debut album in the summer of 2007, following it up with a North American tour alongside the Cave Singers. In 2009, the duo released its sophomore album, the elegant and meditative Infinite Light. In 2010 they were chosen by curator Matt Groening to perform at the All Tomorrow's Parties festival. Third album Fantasy arrived in 2013, marking a sonic shift toward minimal electronic beats and synth textures augmenting the band's sophisticated songcraft.
