Black Moth Super Rainbow Eating Us

Black Moth Super Rainbow Eating Us
With two previous charming, yet purposefully odd, albums under their belt Black Moth Super Rainbow made a hard decision with this recent effort: they went hi-fi. Dabbling in psychedelic pop soundtracked by auto-tuned vocals, warped electro tones and every other ethereal and eerie synth sound, BMSR are the closest you'll get to solid sound oozing from your speakers. Going hi-fi with this effort meant recording in an actual studio with Dave Fridmann (no stranger to psychedelia) and the results are transcendent. Removing the hard edges from their last albums, this is music to take drugs to, or at least emulate the sounds you'd think you would hear if you were taking drugs. "Fields Are Breathing" is subtle and welcome as a ray of gentle sunlight, while "Gold Splatter" is the best soundtrack to the open road. Hell, there's even some acoustic guitar on "American Face Dust." These aural cosmonauts have returned to Earth and their gossamer tales are like nothing you've ever experienced. (Graveface)
