“continually exhilarating” – NPR


“There’s just something in the Austin quartet’s stomp and tamborine jangle, echoed vocals and limber grooves that’s very transportive. “Dreamlove” revels in an immersive motorik groove, while “Aperture” utilizes reverb in a such a way as to make you feel like you’re floating off to a galaxy far, far away.” – Vice Noisey


“Space Is Still the Place exemplifies their ability to remain cohesive while moving between various genres and styles.  This trait, displayed on the album from start to finish, is sure to shoot The Bright Light Social Hour to the top of festival lineups and add to their already infectious and irresistible live show.” Relix


Space Is Still the Place is a more complete work, a 45-minute Southern psychedelic rock odyssey.” – Austin American Statesman


“An early contender for Austin album of the year. 4 StarsAustin Chronicle


“This band brings a live rawness that masterfully bleeds into their records. It’s an unmatched je ne sais quoi that makes their sound relatable to the listener and devoid of condescension” – Life + Times


“Austin is a perpetual hotbed for new and boundaries-pushing music, with psych-rock band The Bright Light Social Hour standing out as a forerunner in 2015.” – Yahoo! Music


“exhilarating. 8.5/10 Stars” – Pop-Break


“Their soaring songs are not for the faint of heart. They’ll leave you breathless and overcome with euphoria, and it’s unlikely you’ll be able to stop grooving to them. 9/10 Stars” – Glide


Today, The Bright Light Social Hour announce a select run of June dates in the Midwest, making stops in Minneapolis, Chicago, Kansas City and more – see full routing below and PRESS HERE for purchasing information.
