Black Moth Super Rainbow's recently released Eating Us might not lovingly upset as many stomachs as 2007's eerily chewy Dandelion Gum. But that's only because people are acquiring a taste for the western Pennsylvania outfit's trippy brand of vivid wildness. Sure, the kooky quintet's latest LP seems almost sedate compared to the band's previous efforts, but that doesn't mean it is less adventurous.
From the vocoder-voiced "Born on a Day the Sun Didn't Rise" through the almost jaunty "Twin of Myself" (just laid open by the Go! Team) and on to the voiceless and ghostly "Smile the Day After Today," this wistful wander of an album traipses over fields few have had the imagination to tread. Think of it as heady music for folks with a head for blowing their minds. Then sit back and revel in the overwhelming wonder of it all.
