The Black Angels

This Song: The Black Angels

When Alex Maas from The Black Angels heard avant garde electronic pop band Silver Apples’ first record in a bar in Cincinnati he had what he describes as a spiritual experience. Listen as he describes the effect that Silvers Apples had on The Black Angels music and how their new record “Death Song” has been an exercise in trying to understand the world we live in now.
