Click to listen to The Black Angels' 'At Night'

Austin-based The Black Angels are hitting the road in support of their latest release, Phosgene Nightmare. Singer Alex Maas explains that the hazy and psychedelic bonus track "At Night" is "for the people who allow the absence of light to rock their subconscious minds like a war. They are stones strolling down streets not needing eyes but always finding their way to love." Maas tells Rolling Stone the track was made for "people who stay up till 7 a.m. finding religion in spinning rare records while the daytime folks get ready to do their part." Phosgene Nightmare is available now, but you can download "At Night" for free here.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
