Comment: This is a previously-owned CD with no back-cover artwork (just jacket and CD in case). The disc shows little-to-no surface-wear and plays through perfectly (has been double-checked). It is adequate for someone just looking to convert the tracks to digital files.

Yet another morsel of psychedelic acid-tinged sweetness from Black Moth Super Rainbow. "Eating Us" takes everything that was great about "Dandelion Gum," the bubbly analogue synths (their adjective, not mine), the vocoder-heavy vocals, and puts it all through a higher-fidelity filter. While I'm more of a fan of the warmer, tape-saturated production on their previous effort, the music itself is still as strong as ever. The melodies are still deliciously lazy and the synths will wash you away into a hazy dream. Also, the clearer production gives allows the lyrics to be heard (slightly) more clearly, though, whether or not that is a merit is also debatable. Indie-tronic is too generic to do this group justice. Just listen to the clips here on the site and you'll know right away if you're ready to join BMSR on their pink cotton candy cloud.

About Black Moth Super Rainbow:

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. Over the next few years, that peculiar sound developed, and the cult of BMSR began. With the release of their naturally-sweetened, candy-coated, and acclaimed 2007 treat, Dandelion Gum, a number of curious listeners bent their ears and adjusted their listening habits to incorporate Black Moth Super Rainbow's oddly creepy and off-beat sweet audio plyings. A string of tours supporting big brothers Flaming Lips and Aesop Rock positioned the oft-camera shy outfit in front of thousands of brand new sonically adventurous music enthusiasts who weren't necessarily prepared for the eccentric visuals of BMSR's surreal live show, but would hopefully emerge changed, and be better off for it.

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.

This is such a cool band! If you get a chance watch on of their videos on You Tube. I'm not sure where these guys heads are at or what they are singing about, but definitely melodic and original tunes. I haven't heard anyting quite like it. This group has been in my top 5 for the last 3 years. And Eathing US is at least as good as their last release.

A perfect place where the music should be in these days where the music scene is extremely boring, "Black Moth Super Rainbow" comes to make us so happy and to satisfy our brains and fill our ears of glorious sounds.
Black Moth Super Rainbow makes some of the most tripped-out experimental music you'll hear around these days, psychedelic electro-rock that belongs in a sci-fi space odyssey done in the 1970's. And it's not like that hard to sit through, hard to appreciate expert stuff Black Moth's music is vibrant, a rainbow of flavors that practically jumps out of the speakers to get your notice.

Now, the big difference is in the texture. Where the band previously embraced the warbly imperfection of its lo-fi recording process, Eating Us is all about crisp production. Credit for the newfound polish (or blame, for the purists) goes to Flaming Lips producer Dave Fridmann -- the first professional producer the band has recruited. The drums in particular bear Fridmann's fingerprints, compressed to perfection for maximum impact on album opener "Born on a Day the Sun Didn't Rise," but the entire album is noticeably crisper than the band's previous output, even as it maintains the laid-back psych vibe.

If you need some psych rock or whatever, you can do much worse.

Loop "Twin of Myself" on your next commute to work, everything will go just fine.

This is not, as listed, the 2LP Record Store Day version of the release. It's the single LP pressed on gray vinyl. I didn't really expect it to be the special edition when I ordered it for under $20, but it really shouldn't be listed that way. That is the crux of the reason for only giving a 3 star review.

This is without a doubt my favorite BMSR album. It maintains the darkness and grittiness that I love about BMSR without comming across too slick the way Cobra Juicy seems to. It's a great album.
