RIYL: The Brian Jonestown Massacre, The Warlocks, Christian Bland & The Revelators
Label: The Reverberation Appreciation / LEVITATION
Besides being an incredibly influential psych rock band many years before the modern age of psychedelia took root, The Black Angels are also responsible for catalyzing the legendary Austin Psych Fest, now known as LEVITATION. Over the years, the concept of merely connecting this counter culture and like-minded bands who dug the same kind of sound, the event expanded to a 3-day festival and has endured as a testament to the undying devotion of psych music all around the globe. The Black Angels have evolved as the festival has, picking up new fans along the journey.
After a year where live music came to a grinding halt, it feels right to include The Black Angels’ unforgettable live performances as a collection in LEVITATION’s new live vinyl series. Whether it’s the hallucinogenic grooves led by Christian Bland’s guitar and organ drones, Alex Maas’ immediately recognizable voice or the top-tier rhythm section backing them, The Black Angels are legends and you should absolutely pick this record up.Â There are three beautiful editions exclusive to LEVITATION (each limited to 1000 copies) that you can check out after the ‘buy’ link. There are also some indie store versions that you can track down, so check your online distros or local stores for more info on those variants.
