The Black Angels announce Clear Lake Forest EP, stream “Diamond Eyes”

on March 18, 2014, 10:30am

Austin psych-rock outfit The Black Angels released their fourth studio album, Indigo Meadowjust 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.

Listen in below:

Clear Lake Forest EP Tracklist:
01. Sunday Evening
02. Tired Eyes
03. Diamond Eyes
04. The Flop
05. An Occurrence at 4507 South Third Street
06. The Executioner
07. Linda’s Gone

Love the bass. The ending is my favorite especially with the descending echoey guitar.
