≈       “The Black Angels’ most revelatory collection thus far, “Indigo Meadow” marks the Austin, Texas based band’s fourth full~length release, following 2010’s acclaimed “Phosphene Dream.” Once again the Black Angels prove themselves the undisputed avatars of contemporary psychedelic rock, simultaneously exalting the genre’s kaleidoscopic past as they thrust it further into the future. Now a four~piece ably supported behind the board by producer/mixer John Congleton (David Byrne & St. Vincent, Explosions In The Sky, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah) the band have brought new focus to their wide~ranging song craft, the righteous riffs and dogmatic drones gaining increased power as they fuel a more expansive emotional terrain. A 21st century trip as transcendent as any in the canon, “Indigo Meadow” masterfully affirms The Black Angels full~throttle commitment to the psychedelic ethos of creativity, community and boundless experimentation.”

Un nouveau bon album pour le groupe de rock psychédélique texan.

≈       Austin psych~rock outfit The Black Angels will release their fourth studio album, Indigo Meadow, on April 2nd via Blue Horizon. The follow~up to 2010’s Phosphene Dream was recorded in El Paso with producer John Congleton (The Walkmen, Jens Lekman, Okkervil River). According to a press release, the 13~track effort represents a “rather major leap forward for these avatars of psych rock,” affirming their “full~throttle commitment to the psychedelic ethos of creativity, community and boundless experimentation.”
≈       But even as they expand their songs into more far~out aural territories, the band stay committed to delivering a message. Written just days before last year’s mass shooting in Aurora, Colorado, lead single “Don’t Play With Guns” balances explosive guitars and blown~out vocals with a truly succinct statement regarding the ugly issue of gun control.
≈       “Our music has always tried to shed light on issues that may be hard to deal with or confront,” singer/guitarist Alex Maas explains. “In ‘Don’t Play With Guns’ the antagonist is a female who has the power of persuasion over a man. Substitute the female antagonist with a Nation, substitute the manipulated man with yourself. If people think they can ignore the issues, they are wrong.  Don’t play with guns, don’t touch a hot stove, don’t give your child a poisonous snake, don’t turn the cheek when artists are willing to discuss these issues.”
