The Black Angels

The Black Angels Uphold Austin’s Long Time Psychedelic Tradition

Austin, Texas goes back a long way with psychedelic music. Maybe all the way back when you consider the claim that Roky Erikson's Thirteenth Floor Elevators were the first psychedelic band back in 1965. Our guests this hour on our Sense of Place: Austin show, The Black Angels, ably carry on the tradition. They are part of the "Reverberation Appreciation Society” that started the Austin Psych Fest in 2010. The festival has now grown into a three day event of like minded bands, and will take place May 2nd - 4th this year. We are happy to welcome The Black Angels back to the show and we will hear a set of music from their 2013 album Indigo Meadow. You can download a song from our set today as well.

Session Setlist
