Editorial Reviews

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.

For sure, it is different than the previous work of the Black Angels. It might even have stretched itself into a whole new dimension skewed on the Twilight Zone when it comes to Psych Rock. But in place of a floating TV and the swirling echo of Rod, you have Alex Maas's beautifully jarbled voice bringing poetic color to the place between light and dark. While it is a deviation from the dirges and hollow trenches that marked their previous work, it still belongs within the same world of sound created by the group--but this time, they have come across the Desert of Incense and Insanity on the Cherry Blossom Psych Bus to suburbia's lava lamp lit garages.

To throw the 1960s imagery aside, I must confess that I found this album to be one of the bands most original (if not potentially alienating--if that would be possible for such a charismatic group--and most definitely energetic) works yet. Yes, you can say it sounds like a Nuggets collection in a sonic blender or link it to other modern bands currently employing a rough psychedelic sound like the People's Temple and the Night Beats, but to do so without listening to the album for what it is, a masterful Black Angels contribution to the stained glass world of Psych Rock, would take away from the overall power of this new album.

Some people say that the Black Angels are whiskey drinking music. I say pour yourself a glass of moonshine or absinthe or water and let this album roll over you--and form your own opinion; trust me, you'll see something different. It's their own door to the Twilight Zone after all, and no story is the same there.

As soon as those tribal drums start in and that Psycho-esque dissonance pipes up you pretty much know what you're in for throughout the next 45 minutes or so. Indigo Meadow isn't any great leap for The Black Angels. Did you like Phosphene Dream? Well you're probably going to like Indigo Meadow just fine. All the hallmarks of a Black Angels album are here; BRMC posturing, Nuggets borrowing, cult-ish vibe and dark psychedelia. Add just a touch of pop seasoning and you have yourself a plate full of goodies that aren't good for you, but they taste pretty decent going down.

"Indigo Meadow" starts things off like a Black Angels album should start; complete with big drums, "evil"-sounding guitars, and Alex Maas singing "Lay your hands, on my chest girl, you've been a problem since the moment I met ya". It's a sound that's permeated every album The Black Angels have put out since 2006. Nothing more, nothing less. A noticeable difference is the production. It's much cleaner and polished than previous albums. This may be good or bad, depending on how you like your psychedelic rock delivered to your ears. "Evil Things" goes a little more metal with an almost Black Sabbath feel until the bridge when it stops momentarily for a quick `flower power' moment. Pretty soon the organ comes in and it sounds like Tony Iommi jamming with The Doors. "Don't Play With Guns" is the biggest change in their sound, with an almost pop feel to it and Maas sounding as if the spirit of Black Francis took over his body for the recording. This song at times has a Pixies sound to it, though I don't think that was a conscious decision on The Black Angels part. Just happenstance I suppose.

A band that never seems to get mentioned as an influence on so many of these stoner/space/psych rock outfits is The Doors.

The Austin's Neo-Psych's 4th release clearly wears it's influences up & down .3 years since their last release has shown a clearer mix while maintaining their own distinct sound on 13 tracks that track in at just under 46 minutes. With thanks given to such influences as Roky Erickson, Austin Psych Fest., and Reverbation Society,the group makes it very clear to all where they are coming from as well as where they intend to lead you.The sound here is heavy-stoner rock combined with American Psychedelia. Influences of 60's Psych, early Black Sabbath, The Velvet Underground, and The Doors all thrown into the mix. The tunes here are clearly darker and heavier than their 2010 release "Phosphene Dream" More sinister sounds with many references to War and dark, heavy keyboard dirges combined with fuzz-tinged guitars. "Evil Things", "Don't Play With Guns", "War On Holiday", and "Broken Soldier", combine with "Holland", "Love Me Forever", "I Hear Colors", and "Twisted Light" to display both sides of the coin with equal balance. "Broken Soldier" declares "It's Hard to kill when you don't know which side you're on", while "I Hear colors running thru my mind" opens "I Hear Colors". So it's obvious as to whether or not this release is for you. The tunes flow into one another and the template goes down easy. I've played the release 6x now and I hear new sounds with each listening. One can even hear some early Uriah Heep organs on "I Hear Colors" You know which side you're on, The Black Angels want you to be aware that all is not "peachy-keen" in Psychedelia and 1969 was not just Woodstock but also Vietnam, The Manson Family, and Altamont. Proceed With Caution! You can dance among the flowers in The Meadow, but beware of poisoned Mushrooms! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! SMRZ!!
