Amoeba Review

07/22/2014

For those that missed picking up a copy of The Black Angels’ Clear Lake Forest EP on Record Store Day, you are in luck. This seven-song psychedelic nugget has been re-released on 12” clear vinyl, CD and digital download. Floating in the bluesy, acid-laced waters of their 2013 release, Indigo Meadow, the Angels continue their mastery of sun-kissed sonic kaleidoscopes. Opening track “Sunday Evening” jangles and pops while lyrically posing the question, “What if I told you that everything you know isn’t even really true?” From there, “Third Eyes” and “Diamond Eyes” showcase the Angels perfection at layering fuzzy noise and sunshine pop while “The Flop” and “Occurrence at 4507 South Third Street” are organ driven, up-tempo numbers that channel a surf party on acid. Taking things down a notch, “The Executioner” is a blues inspired maelstrom of distortion and reverb with the rather hedonistic message, “If it feels good, do it again.” The final track, “Linda’s Gone,” manages to encapsulate everything great about the Velvet Underground while still sounding like the Black Angels. These Austin psyche revivalists may not be inventing the wheel but Clear Lake Forest proves they are always moving forward while taking the listener on a wild ride.
