Having taken its name directly from a Velvet Underground song, Austin, Texas, quartet the Black Angels channels the darker side of '60s psychedelic rock. Overdriven guitars, sunny fuzz effects, and ever-present tambourine drive vocalist Christian Bland's tight-mouthed delivery and bittersweet melodies. The band is touring in support of Indigo Meadow, its fourth and most direct LP to date. Swedish world-music fusionists Goat open the show melding hypnotic psych rock with experimental pop execution.
