All this week, the Song of the Day features artists playing this weekend at Levitation.
Since debuting in 2006, the Black Angels have sought to be more than just a band. The Austinites turn their shows into psychedelic, multi-media experiences, and over the years they’ve added a record label (Reverberation Appreciation Society) and a music festival (Austin Psych Fest, now Levitation) under the Black Angels’ umbrella.
They’re just as world-conquering in their music, which flirts with apocalyptic heaviness while still providing a killer hook. If you missed it, the Angels’ Christian Bland provided an hour-long preview of Levitation on My KUTX this week, and today we’re looking back at the band’s stripped-down 2013 Studio 1A performance. Tune in, turn on, and download a live version of “Evil Things” below.
The Black Angels play Sunday, May 10 at 8:30 p.m. on the Reverberation Stage.
