John Common talks about Beautiful Empty, Blinding Flashes of Light's debut

Categories: Moving Pictures

This Saturday evening, John Common Common & Blinding Flashes of Light is releasing its debut full-length,Beautiful Empty, at Cassleman's Bar & Venue. We've been listening to it for the past few weeks, and it's pretty swell. If you haven't already, download "Love Is a Shark" and check out the video.

As Common, profiled in this week's paper, relates in our piece and reveals in the clip above touting this weekend's shindig, he took a markedly different approach to making this record from his previous recordings, namely eschewing electric guitars in favor of creating intensity with emotion rather than volume. Check it out.
