The Bright Light Social Hour [web site | Amazon.com] was formed by Curtis Roush and Jack O'Brien while they were attending graduate school at the University of Texas in Austin. Joined by drummer Joseph Mirasole, they released their self-titled debut in 2010 and scored six awards at SXSW 2011 Austin Music Awards. Throughout nearly three years on the road, they experienced the ins and outs of America, and that voyage ignited a perspective shift, displayed on their latest album, Space Is Still the Place. "The new album's themes and inspirations came from touring, particularly the southern part of the country," explains Jack. "We couldn't afford to stay in hotels most nights so we were staying with a lot of people. We got to see how average young Americans lived. We felt a lot of struggle."

"It was shocking," adds Curtis. "We realized how few individuals were working jobs they felt self-actualized by to some extent. They're pedaling for survival. Our generation has grown up in continuous financial crises, a lot of unemployment, a lack of opportunity, widening inequality, and pervasive issues of race, gender, and class. We're taking a lens to some of these gritty realities and espousing an optimistic, frontier-looking gaze into the future." Theirs is not just a thematic progression, though. Traversing the country and cranking tunes in the van, the collective musical palette expanded, embracing influences as diverse as deep house icon Frankie Knuckles, dance renegades Disclosure, Motown legends like Marvin Gaye, and Detroit Afro-rock revolutionaries Black Merda. Everything siphoned into the vision behind Space Is Still the Place.

The Coma Recovery's name is suitable for the music they make. Whatever their intentions were when they decided upon the name, the reality is The Coma Recovery's music will pull you out of the dry, barren, monotonous desert of post-hardcore and invigorate your musical life. Blending prog-metal elements—such as heavy-ass stoner-riffs with downtempo, atmospheric waves—with post-hardcore ferocity, the Coma Recovery has created a new, worthwhile sound that has the ability to appease fans of Isis and Tool, as well as These Arms Are Snakes and The Mars Volta. Defining itself with origins in Albuquerque, The Coma Recovery is bolstered by passionate musicians with a consensual desire to create inspirational music and demand its progress.
