More Info

The Black Angels: Not since David Bowie has a musician (or in this case, a group of musicians) been so influenced by the work of the Velvet Underground than Austin psych band, The Black Angels. While the band's name and logo are direct homages to the pioneering experimental rock band, The Black Angels are blazing their own musical trail with incredible tour dates and driving albums like their latest, Phosphene Dream. The album's success has led to 2011 tour dates at some of the world's biggest music festivals; a far cry from the Texas bars they used to play in.

The Black Angels was born in the diverse musical scene of Austin, Texas circa 2004. Bonded by a mutual love of Nico and the Velvet Underground, The Black Angels began posting music on their MySpace page and contributed to the compilation album, Psychedelica Vol. 1. Tour dates at SXSW and Austin City Limits followed the successful release of their debut album, Passover, as did supporting performances for influences The Black Keys and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club. The Black Angels' follow-up, Directions to See a Ghost, became acclaimed from critics at Rolling Stone, Blender, The Times, and other reputable periodicals.

The Black Angels' latest album, Phosphene Dream, features a more streamlined sound that has also been well received by critics and audiences. The album has allowed for numerous tour dates in 2011, including performances at Fuji Rock, Festival Woodstower, the Electric Picnic Festival, and the Saint Nolff Festival, just to name a few. The Black Angels' final performance for the year is on September 13, so be sure to buy your tickets for their 2011 tour dates soon.

Car Seat Headrest: Originally a solo project, Car Seat Headrest is the product of brainchild Will Toledo. Toldeo (real name Will Barnes) started Car Seat Headrest as a lo-fi, DIY project that took its name from Toledo's preference of recording vocals in his car. He self-released his first four albums, given numerical names one through four based on their release, in the Spring and Summer of 2010. His fan base grew tremendously after the self-release of Twin Fantasy in 2011. Toledo signed with Matador Records in 2015, and that same year released a compilation of his self-released material, titled Teens of Style. His first major studio album of original material came in 2016, titled Teens of Denial. That same year, he began a promotional tour which saw Car Seat Headrest utilize a full band.
