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...

Neil Young, Tonight's the Night:

Five friends get together in a studio to drink, play pool, mourn two good friends, and eventually get around to putting down an incredible record. Also just some damn good, gut-wrenching rock and roll.

Fleetwood Mac, Tusk:

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
