Taking their organically psychedelic digitalia to new peaks, Black Moth Super Rainbow deliver one of their strongest and most escapist outings on EATING US, their fourth full-length. The Pittsburgh quintet tapped alt-producer-to-the-stars Dave Fridmann (the Flaming Lips, MGMT, Weezer) to help further crystallize their Air-meets-frying-synapses sound into a simultaneously more palatable and experimental direction. With swirling confections like “Gold Splatter” and “Iron Lemonade” featuring their trademark layered vintage keyboards and vocoders and catchily whimsical choruses, EATING US will satisfy the sweet tooth of heads and non-heads alike. After a year of eerie, stilted silence, the sun shines and the shadows reappear. Black Moth Super Rainbow has crept from the forests and cities to make Eating Us, their dark bubblegum freakout for 2009. The first fully hi-fi BMSR record, Eating Us, adds space and dimension to the band’s sticky, off-kilter melodies. This isn’t an album about witches and woods, and this time around the band isn’t letting on to what it all might mean. Because to them, it’s just better that way. The modern musical unit known as Black Moth Super Rainbow first emerged from an obscure Pennsylvania forest glen in 2003 to relay a somewhat confounding sound with Falling Through a Field. Their new full length presentation for 2009, Eating Us, promises to up the ante on the fidelity and melodies that BMSR have become known for.
