Alex Maas Levitation Sessions features an intimate performance from the Black Angels frontman filmed in Bastrop, Texas. The set includes selections off his new release Luca, an album of mellow psychedelia named after his son, as well as three unreleased songs performed with some of the collaborators he created the album with: Bryan Richie, Jake Garcia, Rob Kidd. These songs have been crafted over a decade in quiet moments between tours and albums with the Black Angels, are finally being released in the live setting on Levitation Sessions. Maas and his band decamped to Texas to bring the live show they had developed for the album to the world via this performance film, shot in the city’s historic downtown. “We shot this down in an old opera house built in 1889 and a 100 year old German tailor mercantile building in historic downtown, which is now Astro Records,” says Maas. “This session is a glimpse of what a tour on Luca would look like had we not been in a pandemic.”
