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

Pennsylvania psychedelics Black Moth Super Rainbow, now expanded to a sextet, are following up 2007 breakthrough Dandelion Gum with their forthcoming fourth album Eating Us. The fixation on mouths and mastication (see, also, Tobacco) is fitting for a band composing such sweet, poppy, immediately consumable sound trips: See Eating’s lead track “Born On A Day The Didn’t Rise,” which pairs that familiar vocoder spillage with hazy lush, stardusted instrumentation, and bouncy ’60s drum beats. It’s easy to make a Flaming Lips comparison or two; the fact that Dave Fridmann handled production makes it easier.
