The Black Angels area a very serious rock band. They play serious music, they don't smile on stage and they for damn sure do not look like they are having a good time. It's not that they seem bored on stage, it's that they -- either intentionally or unintentionally -- exude cool. It drips from their pulsating rhythms, from their drawn out songs, from their I-Don't-Give-A-Fuck-What-You-Think, I'm-Just-Here-To-Play-'Cause-I-Love-Music look. They aren't the best musicians, they don't put on the greatest show in music but without a doubt, the Black Angels are the coolest band in music today.
