BC Camplight 'Deportation Blues' LP

“You shouldn't have a tough time finding the angle to ‘Deportation Blues’,” claims Brian ‘BC Camplight’ Christinzio. “The past few years have been a fucking nightmare.”

His second album for Bella Union, ‘Deportation Blues’ is an exhilarating, dynamic document of calamity and stress, relayed through richly melodic and bold arrangements spanning singer-songwriter classicism, gnarly synth-pop, 50s rock & roll and various junctures between, mirroring their maverick creator’s jarred emotions and fractured mindset.

Recording in Liverpool’s Whitewood studios, Christinzio locked himself in the windowless studio and recorded almost exclusively in the dark.

It’s an uncompromising way to introduce ‘Deportation Blues’, likewise the album’s title track opener. Bookended by metallic power chords, cascading synths and a gorgeous downbeat mood lead into slower doo-wop complete with howling falsetto. “It’s instantly a different, darker record than ‘How To Die In The North’,” Christinzio notes.

‘Deportation Blues’ is also noticeably more electronic than its predecessor. “I was feeling cold so every time something sounded pretty, I replaced it with something that sounded like an ice pick. The apocalyptic nuclear feel really appealed.”

Vinyl format includes digital download code.
