For me, this spring’s breakout rock hit so far is The Black Angels’ Indigo Meadow. It carries the torch for both classic psychedelia and raw, modern rock. And for a band with such a defined sound, there’s a lot of variation within their niche. Songs range from quick and urgent (the insistant, rocking title track) to more laid back fair (the retro, psychedelic “You’re Mine”). If you or someone you know believe that psych-rock died decades ago, pick this up and soak in the talent.
Indigo Meadow is out now on CD and vinyl
