Black Moth Super Rainbow really really busy

Post Author:

It'd be hard to imagine the backstage banter between Aesop Rock and members of Black Moth Super Rainbow, but they've just added more tour dates with the MC, whose new album None Shall Pass will legally be rattling brains when it hits shelves August 28. Hard to imagine if there weren't an abundance of weed they both probably smoke all the frickin time.

It's amazing the members of Black Moth Super Rainbow get so much done considering that dank smell emanating from their last record, Dandelion Gum (Graveface Records), a concept album about forest-dwelling witches who make candy. Along with reissuing their first two albums on October 23, lead vocoder man Tobacco has a DVD called F**ked Up Friends with “lots of hairy beats over the crazy awesome visuals of beta carnage.” Here are two:

“Hawker Boat”

“Hairy Candy”

BMSR's bassist must be feeling the competitive heat from Tobacco. Beyond grabbing up an even weirder moniker, Mr. Power Pill Fist has a sophomore solo album (called KONGMANIVONG) out on Graveface this month.
