PREMIERE: The Black Angels’ Take on The Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations” Kicks Off Levitation Austin’s Saturday Mixtape

The former Austin Psych Fest stakes its claim among the best-booked festivals in the country.

Later this month, Levitation Austin will be bringing heady vibes—and one of festivals season’s most impressive lineups—to Texas’s Carson Creek Ranch. To celebrate that lineup, the erstwhile Austin Psych Fest is releasing a trio of mixtapes ahead of the festival (one for each day), and today we’re pleased to be premiering the Saturday edition.

The hour-long continuous mix, put together by psychedelic DJ Al Lover, draws together cuts from Courtney Barnett, Woods, Parquet Courts, Animal Collective, Bayonne, and many more, and it’s kicked off with the world premiere of The Black Angels’ take on The Beach Boys’ “Good Vibrations,” which appears on the forthcoming tribute to Pet Sounds being released by Levitation on May 27.

Hit play below, relax, and float downstream.
