For today’s San Diego music scene installment, I offer you Black Heart Procession. A San Diego favorite, the band is an amalgamation of other great acts, including Three Mile Pilot, Modest Mouse, the Magic Magicians, The Album Leaf, Via Satellite, and (a personal favorite of mine) Manuok.
I don’t think I could ever describe Black Heart Procession more eloquently than the author of their MySpace biography does: “Theirs is the sound of driving at night across the West. Like the wide-open landscape, this is music that knows how to be both desolate and lush. And it knows that while sadness pulls you down, discontent pushes you forward. So the Procession never stops.”
