the black angels

Could have sworn we’d already mentioned this in passing, fool’s that we are, we were probably too busy picking our jaws up off the floor while our heads simultaneously melted and morphed in the hallucinogenic hypnotic haze. New sonic happening from the Black Angels courtesy of the shape shifting smoke that is ’currency’, this swaggering slab of shade wearing dust dragged psych blues comes peeled from a pencilled in for April end full length entitled ‘death song’ through the partisan imprint. It’s the first new material from Austin’s finest in a few years with the band having just been revealed as the headliners for this year’s Liverpool Festival of Psychedelia in September. ‘currency’ provides the heralding rally cry for that aforementioned set and finds the Angels at the top of their collective powers prowling and blistering with a cooling menace that sounds to these ears like a death rattled sermon uttered by a darkly foretelling preacher man.
