Austin psych-rock outfit The Black Angels released their fourth studio album, Indigo Meadow, just last April. On Record Store Day (April 19th), they’ll return with a follow-up EP entitled Clear Lake Forest, featuring seven brand new songs pressed on limited-edition clear vinyl.
As a sneak peek, the band has unveiled “Diamond Eyes”. Aesthetically similar to Indigo Meadow, the track’s another highly-refined slice of blues-meets-psych-rock, with singer Alex Maas delivering his sun-baked croon over swirls of hazy feedback and guitars that zig-zag like rainbow-colored basilisks. Equal parts visceral and sweeping, it’s perfect for shindigs in the desert or as the soundtrack to your mescaline-fueled escape from heartache.
