TOBACCO IS YOUR FUCKED UP FRIEND

by kevin diamond

Black Moth Super Rainbow are my favorite psuedo-anonymous analog-synth rocking electronic artists. I reviewed their show this summer at McCarren Pool, a face-melting set that cemented my status as a full-blown Black Moth fan. Now lead guy Tobacco is releasing his first solo album, and it’s more of the psychedelic electronic down-temp freak outs we all love. The album is delightfully called Fucked Up Friends, and one such fucked-up friend making a guest turn is everyone’s favorite wordsmith Aesop Rock. Other than that, seems most of the instruments are all played by the main man himself.

The first song released is called “Truck Sweat,” and any fan of Black Moth will instantly recognize the groove and texture. Drink it like a warm cup of absinthe and call me in the morning. Album out Oct. 14th on Anticon. Catch him at Mercury Lounge on Oct 23rd with Fujiya & Miyagi.
