The Black Angels – Live in Amsterdam 2010

The Black Angels are a psychedelic rock band out of Austin, TX. Bringing back memories of great bands like The 13th Floor Elevators & Spacemen 3, they channel their energy into magnificent drones and powerful rock music. Vocals are stunning, guitar work is tight. They are one of my favorites.

Earlier this year they played this set at Amsterdam’s Paradiso, a converted church which is a great venue that I have been fortunate enough to have seen a gig (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club in November 2003). The set is mostly material from their last album, “Directions to see a Ghost”, but there are also some new songs and a few from the debut album, “Passover” as well.

Setlist:

01 You On The Run
02 Mission District
03 Black Grease
04 Yellow Elevator
05 Telephone
06 Science Killer
07 Bad Vibrations
08 The First Vietnamese War
09 Young Men Dead
10 Entrance Song
11 Haunting At 1300
12 Bloodhounds On My Trail

I wasn’t there, so Im not going to review it, but I am going to share the recording:
