Epic 3rd album from Australian concept-album/shoegaze/drone-rock kingpins.
U.S. Edition includes bonus live disc, unavailable elsewhere.
Black Cab’s third album, Call Signs, featured a return to keyboards and found sounds loosely inspired by 1970′s East Germany and the notorious Stasi state security organisation, though there are still plenty of guitars and drums. The album was produced by Woody Annison (Children Collide, ‘Altamont Diary’) and features a guest lead vocal from Died Pretty‘s legendary frontman Ron S. Peno. "Black Angel" is a tribute to the tragic genius ’70′s singer songwriter Judee Sill. In February 2011 Call Signs was shortlisted for the 2010 Australian Music Prize. Hidden Agenda will release Call Signs in the U.S. in May 2012.

Mess & Noise Magazine: "Pitched between M83’s gasping synth soundscapes and Mogwai’s inky instrumental workouts, these songs mine shoegaze, psych and post-rock earmarks while maintaining, at times, the drive of a pop single."
