The Black Angels wear their influences on their sleeve. There is no denying that, but I have to say – that they have a swagger and ambiance that is native to our part of the world. It’s like the weather high above us or the earth beneath our feet. The sounds and rhythms they emit feel as though they have been conjured up from the native Texas soil and channeled out from the amps and souls of this great band to that of the greater beyond. Thanks to the Black Angels for playing one hell of a show….
