$7 - DIGITAL - Available via Bandcamp
$13 - VINYL - 10" blue vinyl from the Reverberation Appreciation Society. Comes with a digital download of the album.
The Reverberation Appreciation Society is proud to announce the release of a split EP from The Black Angels' Christian Bland and modern day cosmic cowboy Chris Catalena. To be released Dec 11 pressed on 10" blue vinyl (limited to 1000 copies worldwide) and digital formats.
Christian Bland is best known as the guitarist for The Black Angels and one of the founders of Levitation, formerly known as Austin Psych Fest. His solo project, Christian Bland and The Revelators highlights his signature sound and contributions to one of modern psychedelic rock’s biggest bands, while providing an open canvas to explore different ideas and influences. Christian’s side of this split EP collects b-sides from his 2014 LP The Unseen Green Obscene.
A staple of both the Psychedelic Rock and Americana scenes in Austin, TX, Chris Catalena's music is timeless, with songwriting that transcends genre. The songs on Chris’ side of this split EP were conceived partly during Chris' stay in the hills of Laurel Canyon and Hollywood, California and partly on an Amtrak train between California and Texas. These tracks were produced with the help of Brett Orrison and Jon Alderson, and also include guest appearances from Alex Maas (The Black Angels) as well as Stephanie Hunt (Actress/Writer).
