STUDIO MUSIC: The Black Angels

A psychedelic rock band from Austin, Texas, The Black Angels, releases a limited edition 10”vinyl B-Sides collection titled ‘PHOSGENE NIGHTMARE’ on Blue Horizon Records(Fleetwood Mac!) in support of Record Store Day. Only 5000 copies of the record will be available on Saturday April 16th throughout Europe and North America on collectible white vinyl that also comes packed with an MP3 download card featuring all 6 tracks.

Explaining the release, guitarist Christian Bland says – “’Phosgene Nightmare’ is 6 more dreams recorded during the ‘Phosphene Dream’ sessions. The 6 dreams were specifically saved as an epilogue to the full length album and help to complete the story that was presented thru the full length album. The 6 ‘nightmares’ explore the poisonous side of life, if we lose focus on the light that exists in the darkness.”*

I scored myself a copy on Record Store Day from Angry Mom Records.

Cool band fact:  the band’s name derives from the Velvet Underground song “The Black Angel’s Death Song“.
