Why do we like this?
I think it's safe to say that plenty of good things come out of Austin, Texas, and the Black Angels are no exception. Since forming in 2004, this band continues to deliver quality music. Their latest work Phosphene Dream , dropped on 9/14, and while it may not be one of the stand-out albums of the year, it's definetely worthwhile.

The Black Angels have been compared to at least a dozen other rock bands who were clearly influenced by the psychedelia of the late 60s. I'm not sure that's such a good thing (or bad), but I do know that you can count on The Black Angels to make you completely captivated.

Ok fine, so stylistic originality isn't their forte. Nonetheless, this band is justifiably bad ass. Phosphene Dream starts out in an atmospheric haze with "Bad Vibrations," and before you even realize it, you're completely submerged in the driving rhythm of "Sunday Afternoon." Whether it's a weekend BBQ or flying down the highway (windows down of course) rocking out to "Entrance Song," Phosphene Dream is well suited for any occasion.

This album is most definitely a grower. Between the clever lyrics, mesmerizing vocals of Alex Maas, and the actual music, it gets better each time you spin it.

If you haven't experienced the Phosphene Dream yet, I highly suggest that you do. And no, I'm not talking about taking drugs. Who needs LSD when you have bands like The Black Angels?
