Just as J. Timberlake brought sexy back, Austin’s The Black Angels are bringing the 60s back. (WHOA: Dad joke alert! Sorry everybody.) The neo-psych rockers have a new record on the way, entitled Phosphene Dream, which is slated for a September 14 release on the newly revived Blue Horizon label. Founded in the late 60s, Blue Horizon was home to blues artists like boogie-woogie pianist Champion Jack Dupree and… OH YEAH Fleetwood Mac. Sire Records founders Seymour Stein and Richard Gottehrer (also the co-founder of indie music distributor The Orchard) are the men behind the label.
Black Mountain and Wolfmother producer Dave Sardy worked with The Black Angels to record the album over a six-month period in Los Angeles. A fall tour is in the works, and the band has some very special performances lined up for the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK, Rock en Seine in Paris, and the All Tomorrow’s Parties festival in New York state.
