Collecting The Black Angels' first two EPs on a single disc, Another Nice Pair (LITA 066) stands as a potent document of the band's formative psych-rock sound. Presented as a vinyl "double EP," the A side (The Black Angels EP released 10/18/2005 as LITA 017) includes key tracks from the critically acclaimed debut album Passover (LITA 018, released 4/11/2006) in addition to the non-album jam "Winter '68." The B side flip presents the original Black Angel Exit EP (released 5/13/2008) which was available only as a limited edition bonus EP for those who pre-ordered the band's sophomore Directions To See A Ghost LP (LITA 033, released 4/15/2008). This side also includes tracks that were available only as bonus material on the limited edition 3-LP version of Directions To See A Ghost, in addition to the iTunes exclusive "Black Angel Exit/Shine," and a ripping cover of Black Mountain's "No Satisfaction."

Explaining the Phosgene Nightmare release, guitarist Christian Bland says - "’Phosgene Nightmare' is 6 more dreams recorded during the Phosphene Dream sessions. The 6 dreams were specifically saved as an epilogue to the full length album and help to complete the story that was presented thru the full length album. The 6 'nightmares' explore the poisonous side of life, if we lose focus on the light that exists in the darkness."
