October 11, 2009 Black Moth Super Rainbow
I listened to a lot of the experimental psychedelic band Black Moth Super Rainbow at the beginning of the summer. They’re really fun to drive around to; their dreamy, lush, vocoder-ridden songs go perfectly with hot air blowing on your face.
I’m 99% sure their songwriting method is just going into the woods outside of Pittsburgh, dropping a shit ton of acid, and then transcribing sunlight patterns into music. They’re also interesting because all their vocals are blasted through a fuzzed-out vocoder, which adds a strange, robotic dimension to their warm analog sounds.
I just re-listened through their newest album Eating Us. After re-listening to the songs “Fields are Breathing” and “Smile the Day after Today”, I thought that people would find them interesting. So, here they are!
