The Black Angels, Phosphene Dream
2010 | Label: Blue Horizon / The Orchard

From the death-knell drums and spooked organ of Phospene Dream's first track "Bad Vibrations," it's clear the Black Angels have but one aim in mind: to take us on a trip into the deepest and darkest of psychedelic swamps.

For anyone new to the area, the Angels serve as reliable guides. Their previous albums, Passover and Directions To See A Ghost (both recorded in their native Austin, Texas), exhibited a slavish devotion to '60s drone-rock, putting… read more »

The Black Angels

Rhamona

If....you lived in the 60's, had a high powered stereo system and enjoyed putting on good headphones with the volume comfortable, turning the main volume way up so the air would vibrate then flip the reel-to-reel on, lay on the floor and be gone for hours....then you will love the Black Angels.

My new favorite band.

I discovered them through a music sampler and was knocked over by their sound. I've since bought their entire catalogue and recommend you do the same. See them live if you get the chance. "Telephone" is a fun single, but there is a lot of great psychedelia here.

Amazing

My fave of 2010. Play it loud and let it soak in. Just scored tickets to see these guys in Toronto in a couple weeks, can't wait!

Great Group, Great Album

This old-fart refugee from the 60's loves these guys and this album is a big step forward. The Black Angels takes me back to the music I listened to so long ago and yet they are fresh. Love the grooves. I suggest that the reviewer who felt they go on too long needs to get some help from his friends.

You mean it;s psychedelic? No...

I do like this album. It's fun to listen to and what they do they do well. But... is this the same song or a new one. The Walkmen are guilty of the same thing sometimes, but while they pulled off taking their sound to new heights on their new album, the Black Angels don't quite get there. Sometimes the riffs go on too long or the singing seems to drag. I do think they are developing something though. There are some great tracks too: "Haunting", "River of Blood" to name a couple. One thing for sure, we don't need any more bands using Black in their name.

Best yet!

Been a fan for a while. I cam to the black angels because they had a sound that reminded me of 16 Horsepower. They still do...a little, but they have really made a great move on this album. It's got a great 60's Doorish feel, but all their own.

Their best

Songs like Telephone, Phosphene Dream, and Yellow Elevator #2 are absolutely on fire--melodic, hard edged, complete. An homage to classic psych that also breaks new ground in ways that I've just begun figuring out.
