The Unseen Green Obscene of Christian Bland and The Revelators

Christian Bland is the guitarist in one of my all-time favorite bands The Black Angels. Therefore, I was encouraged when I learned he had decided to have a side project, because the sound he creates, the exploration and monolithic ranges he reaches are one of the reasons I love The Black Angels.  In their second album, The Unseen Green Obscene, I get more of that particular sound, more of Christian Bland exploring the confines of what he is capable of, and I love it. The tracks all blend together naturally, making he whole album seem like one long track and he moves from song to song, and sound to sound.  Now, the album is definitely lo-fi, but on vinyl, the sound resonates warm and fantastic.
