Directions To See A Ghost: HOT, HOT, HOT, Brand New Black Angels

The aptly named Directions To See a Ghost is the brand new full length album from Austin, Texas’ Black Angels. If you’re like me and have a real soft spot for heavy psychedelia then this one fits the bill perfectly. It’s filled with powerful,tribal sounding drumming surrounded by heavy bass and reverb laden guitars swirling in tremolo all coalescing into a mesmerizing hypnotic blend.
If you’re a fan of bands like Black Mountain or A Place To Bury Strangers this one’s definitely for you.
They’re currently about to embark on a short tour of the UK before returning to alter minds on their US tour throughout the summer, be sure to catch them when they hit your town this will surely be one ogf the hottest shows of the summer.
