Black Moth Super Rainbow produced an Album that one could call orgasmically psychedelic. Despite the deep electronic symphonies and ominously mechanical vocals, the band seemed to convey a soft and almost loving tone in most of the songs in this album.
The darkest tone in this album would be in the song ‘I Think I’m Evil’. This is also the song that I feel carries the most weight instrumentally, and also conveys the overall message of dwindling humanity that is ever present in this album.
It’s hard to find much wrong with the album as a whole but if I were to nitpick, I would have to criticise it’s repetitive nature
It’s hard to find much wrong with the album as a whole but if I were to nitpick, I would have to criticise it’s repetitive nature. This may be ever present in the psychedelia genre but it still does become a bit annoying (especially if you listen to all the songs in one go). However, this doesn’t take away from the masterpiece of this blend between dance and indie.
The most “funky” song that I’d recommend to any shufflers out there is ‘Gangs in the Garden’- it’s like a cross between MGMT and Barry Gibb. This particular track seems to find the elusive middle ground between stoner chilled music and dancehall banger. It succeeds in being both a song you can jive and relax to.
By far, I feel the stand out single from this album is ‘Like a Sundae’. Through its soft melodic tones and upbeat rhythm, it carries the listener on a journey similar to being thrust through melting butter (or an ice cream sundae as the song implies).
