A while back, I likened the Black Angels' music to “psych-rock 101.” Which means that the veteran Austin, Texas, band's songs adhere to fairly conventional structures and their instruments conform to familiar tonalities—genre trademarks that have solidified into tropes. It's as if they're trying to transmute LSD into comfort food. That approach holds on the Black Angels' latest full-length, Death Song. No question, the Black Angels are solid songwriters and competent players, but if you look to psych-rock for transcendence and/or sonic madness (and I hope you do), they will leave you wanting.
