just something dadaistic to share unreleased The Black Angels from their new record,Death Song, which is either one of the best things they’ve done or i’m simply really starved for this kind of wonderful noise..and voice..and mellotron..what a welcome aural libation in this drought of psychemagik, and an early frontrunner for album of the year.

The Record Store Day version of their album is on glow in the dark vinyl, black light cover, double LP, sticker, poster and download card. The Black Angels – Austin’s psych rock masters release their fifth album Death Song. This is the five-piece’s first full-length release in four years, and their debut for Partisan Records. Written and recorded in large part during the recent election cycle, the music on Death Song serves as part protest, part emotional catharsis in a climate dominated by division, anxiety and unease. Currency, a strong contender for the heaviest song the band has ever put to wax, meditates on the governing role the monetary system plays in our lives, while slow-building psychedelic earworm Half Believing questions the nature and confusing realities of devotion. Recorded between Seattle and Austin, Death Song features production from Phil Ek (Father John Misty, Fleet Foxes, The Shins). The 11-track collection offers a sharply honed elaboration on their signature sound – menacing fuzz guitar and cutting wordplay, steeped in a murky hallucinatory dream.
