Austin’s legendary Black Angels are back this week with their latest neo-psych opus ‘Indigo Meadow’, recorded by Paper Chase visionary John Congleton in Texas and boasting 13 songs of their ‘60s-style psych garage and trademarked “hypno-drone ‘n’ roll”. It’s actually a lot more poppy than I was expecting, quite often finding itself in Queens of the Stone Age territory thanks to singer Alex Maas’s clear and distinct croon, while elsewhere they opt for a BJM-esque mid-paced hippie groove.
There’s a clarity to their sound which often reminds me more of classic UK psych pop bands than the current crop of distorto-rocking psych warriors doing the rounds nowadays with their endless jams full of farty bass and cosmic guitar - this is far more comprehensible and pop-oriented despite being deeply psychedelic at heart, often sounding not unlike those evergreen Scandi-weirdos The Soundtrack Of Our Lives mixed with a faster paced Black Mountain. I like my psychedelia a bit dirtier and more impenetrable to be honest, but it’s an admirable effort and people who are already into their distinct brand of neo-psych won’t be disappointed.
