  • Psych-rockers the Black Angels will make a trip (get it? — trip) to the Beachland this week.

The Black Angels call their latest album Directions to See a Ghost. Judging from the music, we gather that the first step involves consuming tons of hallucinogenic drugs. More so than any of its contemporaries, this Austin fivesome pretty much requires some tripping to fully appreciate its expansive soundscapes. Organs, guitars, and voices swell and drone (and drone and swell) over a set of songs that don't really follow any sort of pattern. They're kinda just thrown out into big, wide-open spaces and then given the chance to play around. Sometimes there are collisions; sometimes everything comes together beautifully. Either way, prepare to have your mind blown.
