Black Moth Super Rainbow: “Born On A Day The Sun Didn’t Rise”

Eating Us

I don’t know what to classify Black Moth Super Rainbow as, is it psychedelic? Yes, but that description seems so lacking.  Is it electronic? Yes, but again, the word doesn’t seem to encapsulate what’s going on here; at best I can call it brilliant.  Following up 2007’s Dandelion Gum the Pittsburgh, PA band has put out one of my favorite albums thus far this year in Eating Us.  Its heavy use of vocoder and brilliant symphonic keyboards make it wonderfully expansive and equally strange.  The entire album and especially the first song, “Born on a Day the Sun Didn’t Rise” are simply entrancing, the music just swirls, trippy, great stuff.
