[DRUGGY ELECTRO] If, before listening to the group, you read about how "accessible" Black Moth Super Rainbow's sound has gotten in recent years, then went out and bought its last few records, you'd probably assume the Pennsylvania outfit's earlier output must've been really fucking bizarre. You'd mostly be right. In truth, though, the only thing the band did with 2009's Eating Us and last year's Cobra Juicy was take a duster to its sound, cleaning up the deliberately lo-fi cobwebs covering its mix of psych-folk and trippy-dippy electro and allowing its chemically-enhanced quirks to shine even brighter. Basically, if 1980s uber-drug-fiend-era Flaming Lips had access to 2000s digital-recording technology, the music they'd make to come down from their own acid freakouts would sound a bit like BMSR's version of "accessibility."
