More twisten than dark, but still psych. On their 4rd studio album, The Black Angels have left some of the scuzz behind and have added some pep to their baselines. The lyrics are still dark, but the instrumentals seem to have lightened up a bit. ‘Holland’ stands out with bubbling distortion on the vocals and a wailing guitar lead. The first single off of this album, ‘Don’t Play With Guns’ delivers with rumbling drums and outbursts of fuzzed guitar.
