New Music Tuesdays: the Black Angels, "Telephone"

Back at the end of June, when the Black Angels leaked “Bad Vibrations,” the first single off their upcoming third full-length album, I marked Sept 14 on my calendar.  Phosphene Dream is out today and right now they’re streaming the whole thing free from their website.

If you are a fan of the psychedelic sounds of the late 60s/early 70s, and I believe it has been conclusively demonstrated (with graphs!) that we are, then do yourself a favor and check out their performance on David Letterman of a song thematically similar to but in most other ways quite different from “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child.

Here’s the album version:

    I saw The Black Angels at All Points West in 2008; they were good, but a side stage in th middle of the day wasn’t the best match for them. I prefer the Spacemen 3/Spiritualized stoner psych of their past albums to this 1960s psych incarnation, but this is still a sweet track. Call my name.
