Big Black Cloud’s festering strain of psych-garage punk regularly inspires comparisons to avant vets Pere Ubu and noise-blues unit Cows. On July 2, the Portland trio — composed of guitarist/vocalist Nick Capello, bassist/vocalist Soo Koelbli, and drummer Travis Wainwright — will unleash their second album, Black Friday, an 11-track freakout that record label Eolian Empire describes as a “two-year labor of loathe.” Last month, Big Black Cloud shared the LP’s opening track, the darkly churning “Cities of the Red Night” (via Brooklyn Vegan), and now the feedback-lacerated crew has made the whole full-length available for streaming below. Tour dates, followed by Black Friday in all its tense, taut, seething, screaming fury, below.
