the black angels - posphene dream

the black angels are a band from austin, texas, formed in may 2004. their name derives from the velvet underground song the black angel’s death song.
phosphene dream is their first release since their highly acclaimed "directions to see a ghost" and their third full length album in general. "phosphene dream" is the right step on the ladder to the stoner/psychedelic/progrock heaven. it's far more of a rock-monster than their previous album was. that also means less drone, shorter songs.... but also more fun. at some parts the vocal intonation reminds me of grace slick from jefferson airplane and musically they combine their stoner/psychedelic rock with beatles'esque harmonies and surfpop elements. this might not amuse hardcore drone-fans, but to me it means evolution... or as someone said.... evolution not revolution. great album... another positvie surprise in 2010.
