Fronted by Texan native Danny Lee Backwell, Myth Of A Man is Night Beats’ fourth studio album and their second for Heavenly Recordings, following the release of Who Sold My Generation in 2016.
While Blackwell has always fed off the musical legacy of his Texas roots - Roky Erickson and the 13th Floor Elevators, The Red Krayola, The Black Angels and more paving the way for the napalm-coated psych-rock headtrip of past albums - Myth Of A Man has him pulling from the surrogate wellspring of Nashville,
In short, it’s an album that holds its own next to the classics, less of the bloodshot acid trip of Sonic Bloom (2013) and Who Sold My Generation (2016 here, Blackwell has recalibrated them, slowed them down just enough and allowed them the space to breathe and exist as something new. It’s the same
book, just a different chapter.
