Your 33 Black Angels Pick 10 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

Sunday night, Notsuoh plays host to Your 33 Black Angels, a manic garage-psych group from Brooklyn, N. Y. The band sometimes boasts eight members, and reminds us of a less-pretentious Brian Jonestown Massacre or trance-driven Black Lips.

And there's the "96 Tears" organ that chimes in here and there. But then the mouth harp and horns come out of nowhere and it evokes Exile On Main St., so Y33BA obviously has something for everyone.

(I guess this means Anton Newcombe is shooting me when the BJM hits Houston in April. Welp, it's been a fun run.)

The band has recorded four albums, with a new one, Moon and Morning Star, just getting released this past week.

Before the band comes into town, I asked them to list ten albums that you cannot, absolutely, positively, must not leave this mortal world without hearing. I think I am doing pretty good since I have heard half of them. Still got lots of living left...
