Austin-based act The Black Angels have been unleashing their hypnotic, neo-psychedelic music upon the masses for a while now, but I’m just getting caught up. Fuzzy, bluesy songs about death, destruction and isolation pepper their first 3 full-length releases – all striking a seemingly perfect balance between vibes both primitive and polished.
The self-proclaimed ‘Native American Drone n’ Rollers’ have a new album called Phosphene Dream due out on Blue Horizon Records in September. Here’s a taste called “Bad Vibrations.” I’m obsessed with the basslines.
Here’s video for the being-badass track “Black Grease,” off their debut LP Passover. It’s all swagger.
“So just kill kill kill kill!”
ONE MORE: Loving this collaboration they did recently with UNKLE called Natural Selection. A little more playful.
Go to their awesome official site for trippy video footage and a ton of other live tracks and photos.
