The Black Angels

The sultry neo-psychedelic sound of the Black Angels came together in spring 2004. Hailing from Austin, Texas, they initially comprised Stephanie Bailey (drums), Christian Bland (guitar), Alex Maas (vocals), Jennifer Raines (organ), and Nathan Ryan (bass), and took their name from a Velvet Underground classic, "The Black Angel's Death Song." The band's self-titled debut EP was released in late 2005. After a string of North American dates in winter 2006, they readied themselves for a performance at the annual South by Southwest Music Conference in March. Their first couple of full-length albums -- April 2006's Passover and April 2008's Directions to See a Ghost -- were both, in the main, recorded at Erik Wofford's Austin, Texas-based Cacophony Recorders, a studio also used by other local and notable indie rock acts such as White Denim and Voxtrot. By the time the second record was issued, Raines had been replaced by multi-instrumentalist Kyle Hunt and the Black Angels were beginning to create a name for themselves on the live circuit among fans of '60s-inspired psych rock.

In late 2008, they performed as the backing band for former 13th Floor Elevators frontman Roky Erickson on a series of dates across the West Coast of the U.S. Next, in 2010, they recorded a couple of collaborative tracks with Unkle, one of which -- "With You in My Head" -- appeared on the soundtrack to that summer's multi-million-grossing The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. This large-scale exposure led to their third album, September 2010's Phosphene Dream, becoming something of a breakthrough record when it hit the Top 50 of the Billboard chart immediately following its release. Its companion piece, the Phosgene Nightmare EP, arrived in 2011, and in 2012, following Ryan's departure, Rishi Dhir of Elephant Stone became an auxiliary bandmember, filling in on guitar and occasionally bolstering their live sound with sitar. Released in 2013, Indigo Meadow was produced and mixed by Grammy-nominated fellow Texan John Congleton, and that release was soon followed by its own companion EP, April 2014's Clear Lake Forest. ~ MacKenzie Wilson & James Wilkinson

Oh my this band is amazing, the the singer sounds similar to Jim Morrison. Love this sound.

Love The Flow of This Jam.

Great sound. I do have trouble with the need to find similarities to other bands like the doors. I am not a doors fan but like this, there is plenty of music to go around and not that hard to hit the thumbs up/down. I'm just grateful Pandora exists. No more commercial radio for me with brain dead DJ's with an over inflated sense of greatness, music speaks for itself.

The Black Keys? Really Pandora? They have about as much in common with The Black Angels as Miley Cyrus does with Megadeth. Oh wait, they both have Black in their names! Good call Pandora!

Black Keys bug me big time. I think we've had enough smart a** white guys pilfering the blues for the aeon.

Excellent sound, a new band to me. The Black Angles come up on my Jesus and Mary Chain station, no Black Keys yet.

NOT like the Black Keys. I really wish Pandora would stop playing Black Keys/Dan Auerbach on EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY STATIONS.

Don't Play With Guns is their best song ever. So catchy. Love me that one. Fine job. NOW LET'S DANCE, KIND OF.
