I’ve been subscribing to the the XLR8R Mixcasts for a while now. Most are hit or miss, but I’m always pleased with the large amount of new music they dig up, and its variety. But the most recent mixcast (9-9-08) really blew my socks off. It’s a mix put together by Tobacco from Black Moth Super Rainbow. Darkly titled “Songs to Get Killed in the Woods to” it combines some new BMSR, Prank calls from the likes of Longmont Potion Castle, some old Beck, the Butthole Surfers thrown in for good measure, plus a lot more.

XLR8R Mixcast 9-9-08, Songs to Get Killed in the Woods To – Tobacco



I’ve been sitting here for a good 30 minutes trying to find the best way to describe Black Moth Super Rainbow (mp3s available for download). I’m not sure I can do better than the album insert from their album “Dandelion Gum”.

“Deep in the woods of western Pennsylvania vocoders hum amongst the flowers and synths bubble under the leaf-strewn ground while flutes whistle in the wind and beats bounce to the soft drizzle of a warm acid rain. As the sun peeks out from between the clouds, the organic aural concoction of Black Moth Super Rainbow starts to glisten above the trees.”

Add Black Moth Super Rainbow to the list of bands that perfectly walk the fine line between analog and electronic. They seem to be a wonderful, perfect storm of each member’s individual influence. A truly successful collaboration. I’d recommend looking into each’s respective works:
