“Guiding Light”, the transcendent third album from Ron S. Peno and the Superstitions. “Guiding Light” follows the critically acclaimed releases “Future Universe” (2011) and “Anywhere and Everything is Bright” (2013) as the purest expression of the band’s sweeping, propulsive chamber rock to date.
In recording these eight stirring journeys into the realms of uncertainty, remorse, restlessness and yearning, Ron S. Peno and the Superstitions brought the passion and grand atmospheres of their renowned live shows into the studio. The result is an album that’s urgent and unabashedly emotional, yet also exquisitely refined. In places it’s a surefire floor-filler, too.
Here, then, is that rarest of things: a record that hits the heart as hard as it hits the hips.
