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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
