[PSYCHEDELIC GARAGE PUNK] Austin-based psychedelic shoegazers the Black Angels have churned out dark riffs and even darker ruminations since 2005’s opus, Passover. Alex Maas and co. return to the battlefield on their fourth record, the just released Indigo Meadow, while tripping in groovier terrain that channels the Doors, Velvet Underground and Jesus and Mary Chain. But don’t miss opener Hanni El Khatib, the latest act to be taken under the production wing of Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach. On his scrappy-sexy 2011 debut, the grunge bluesman showed a knack for imaginative covers, taking on everything from Funkadelic to Elvis to an all-but-unrecognizable Louis Armstrong classic (the crunchy rager “You Rascal You”). His Auerbach-produced follow-up, Head in the Dirt, is in fact a much less dirty outing, but El Khatib’s aggressive talent and quirks set him apart from the trendy lo-fi herd.
