The Black Angels – Directions To See A Ghost (Light In The Attic)


The Black Angels Directions To See A Ghost (Light In The Attic)

A psychedelic cover gives listeners an inkling of what musically lies within the new album from Texan rockers’ The Black Angels. Musically dark yet mind opening, Directions To See A Ghost is all morphing vocals, frazzled guitars, pounding drums and various droning antics. It is possible to get drawn into their world from listening to the album, which is a scary yet cool place of supernatural happenings and macabre goings on. Album highlights include the secretive Science Killer, sitar laced Deer-Ree-Shee, and protestful Vikings. I’m no clearer as to where the ghost actually resides after listening to the album, but there’s definitely a mystical quality to this long player.
