"The Sonoran Desert serves as a crossroads of culture and climate, but a new album from local folk group Desert Angels takes that concept to the next level—or plane of existence."
-Jeff Gardner, Tucson Weekly
"An all-encompassing magic carpet ride. Transcending time and space, it flows back and forth, and bathes the listener, energizes, inspires, and saves the soul. Thank you for bringing light to a dark time."
-Rupert Macnee, Television Producer "Histories Mysteries"
"Polychromatic Transmission" (2020) is the second album by Desert Angels, a Tucson, Arizona based cosmic-americana/ufolk ensemble lead by Billboard chart-topping songwriter and Old Bisbee Records founder Stuart Oliver. Replete with lush female harmonies and rootsy, organic instrumentation the record is a psychedelic-folk symphony written over the past 18 years of Oliver's experiences living in the states of Georgia, New Mexico, Hawaii, and Arizona.
A year in the making, Liminal is a collection of songs about the betwixt and between twilight zone of borders, boundary violations, dissociation, and transformation. It's got songs about the BMZ (Border Militarized Zone) of Southern AZ; the ghost-chasing paranormal tourism industry of old western mining towns like Bisbee, Arizona; turning into an owl; and the mysteries of Jehovah the Great Dissociator of the Old Testament. And: a sweet, sweet country love song.
