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.

I think their sound might have peaked with "Phosphene Dream". I consider that album to be a classic.
They changed up their soundscape for this album. I find it distracting, but I realize they can't make the same album over and over. Maybe it will grow on me over time.
If you want another good "black" band, give "Black Mountain" a listen.... their album Wilderness Heart is a dandy.
Having been a fan of The black angels for quite some time i had a lot of anticipation for this album too drop. I purposely did not listen too any of the leaks of this album so i could take it all in at once. Well upon receiving the vinyl in the mail i opened it with a huge smile on my face and took the 180g slab of vinyl out of the gatefold and placed it on my deck. The first song indigo meadow played and i was not impressed, i thought it sounded overly produced and had a bad chorus so i was pretty let down upon listening too this first song. Don't play with guns picked up the slack with a catchy chorus and great reverb. The album picked up from their and hit its pinnacle with the fourth song the day which in my opinion was their best song since their first album passover. The unfortunate thing is that the rest of the album has its ebbs and flows, war on holiday and broken soldier are great songs but i hear colors and twisted light just seen disjointed and feel out of place on this album like they threw them in too fill the album out.
The real star here is the vinyl pressing of this album. Light in the attic records once again came through with a quiet flat presentation of the album with such huge transparency in the vocals and background guitars that the cd just doesn't deliver. If you have a turntable than you will not be disappointed in the vinyl presentation of this album
