Clear Lake Forest by The Black Angels

Previously only available on limited 10" for RSD, features 7 entirely new tracks.  It follows their album Indigo Meadow (2013) where once again The Black Angels proved themselves the undisputed avatars of contemporary psychedelic rock.

“Imagine tossing bands from the pantheon of American psychedelia like The Electric Prunes, Count Five, 13th Floor Elevators and The Seeds into your blender, adding a splash of Sabbath and a dollop of early Soundgarden or Mudhoney, and you’ve got Austin’s The Black Angels.” - Associated Press.

6/10 ReviewBot3000 18 July 2014
Self-appointed leaders of the Austin psych-rock scene the Black Angels have a new EP out this week, with seven songs squeezed onto this 45rpm 12". I've never completely got on with this band, they play a well-observed and inoffensive brand of psychedelic pop with a slavish love of the '60s and a slight nod to Britpop which is well summed up by the opening track here, 'Sunday Evening', which sounds like The Charlatans covering Nilsson's 'The Point'.   They're at their best when they're doing their big rousing layers of psychedelia with wah guitar atop a strangely indistinct swell of stomping BJM-ish hypno-rock, but I still struggle to put my finger on what's distinct about their sonic personality. It's all perfectly competent and if you like their albums you'll not be disappointed here either, but as a psych-rock lover this band frustrate me. I feel like everyone else gets it and I don't. An alright record by a consistently alright band.
