Transcending Logic: An Interview with Black Moth Super Rainbow

Black Moth Super Rainbow’s Tobacco weathered a difficult couple of years after hating 2009’s Eating Us and tossing an entire new album out in 2012 because it sounded like the same old thing. He talks to us about coming out of the doldrums, finding a meaner more guitar-centered sound and why you don’t need drugs to trip out to BSMR.

Black Moth Super Rainbow: Eating Us

Eating Us trims the fringe impulses of Black Moth Super Rainbow, but it does so with a good degree of credibility.

Tobacco: Fucked Up Friends

Tobacco may not distinguish himself from his past in Black Moth Super Rainbow, but he at least plucks from the best of that band's catalogue.

Black Moth Super Rainbow: 17 August 2007 - Philadelphia

It's not the usual hint of hedonistic depravity that floats into Philadelphia's Old City section tonight. No, what I smell is something else entirely.

Black Moth Super Rainbow: Dandelion Gum

A mysterious Western Pennsylvania psychedelian collective paints daydream tableaus in vibrating, supersaturated colors.
