BLACK ANGELS, THE: Passover: CD

First release from this Austin band. Psychedelic, trippy music that will cause your mind to wander into dark realms of the unknown. “Black Grease” and “Call to Arms” were particularly scary to me. Think if the 13th Floor Elevators and The Velvet Underground’s vans crashed in the desert, and Doug Yule got in the wrong van, and Roky Erickson got in the other. They both drove away but played their respective gigs that night. You would then have some vague inkling of what The Black Angels are about. I guess I’m going to have to go see them live so I can see what a ‘drone machine” looks like.
