After ”Tres Dias”, Heavy Psych Sounds Records is proud to announce another exciting reissue off BRANT BJORK’s back catalogue, with his 2004 classic ‘Local Angel’ being released this fall along with a brand new artwork and special vinyl editions!


‘Local Angel’ is the fourth solo album by Desert Rock Godfather, Kyuss- and Fu Manchu- legend Brant Bjork. It is considered as his most intimate, peaceful and laid back record to date, mixing acoustic guitars and haunting melodies. Take a step back into the groove of the desert, tracks alike the folk of “Beautiful Powers”, the classic rock in “The Feelin’” to the laid back psychedelic funk of “Hippie”, ‘Local Angel’ was a soul spirit that stands alone in Brant’s catalogue and outside of it.

Says Brant Bjork “Been a long time since i celebrated these recordings. Couldnt think of a better time to re-release. Fresh art to represent “brand new old times”. Enjoy!”



The track list of ‘Local Angel’ reads as follows:

1. Beautiful Flowers

2. Hippie

3. Chico

4. The Feelin’

5. Bliss Ave.

6. Fly to Haiti

7. You’re Alright

8. Spanish Files

9. She’s Only Tryin’

10. The Good Fight

‘Local Angel’ has been produced by Brant Bjork and Tony Mason. This Brant Bjork classic has been recorded and mixed at Rancho de la Luna in February 2004 and was mastered by Mathias Cornelius von Schneeberger at Donnor & Blitzen.
