Echotone: The Black Angels Interview

On September 6th, Reversal Films is going to be releasing a documentary about Austin, Texas and their psychedelic music scene. It’s directed by Nathan Christ and  is comprised of interviews and information about bands like the Black Angels, Ghostland Observatory, Black Joe Lewis and other Austin bands. One of the interviews has surfaced online and it’s with the frontman of one of my favorite bands, the Black Angels. Alex Maas answers a few questions on what it was like working with the legendary Roky Erickson, how to keep a band going, and why the band has stayed in Austin.

It’s a pretty decent interview. It gives a better insight into a state that I’ve pretty much dismissed. After listening to the interview though, it sounds like Austin is where most of the cool bands have come from. Put it on my to-visit list. Fuck Dallas.
