Tobacco and co. keep things weird and sticky

Black Moth Super Rainbow titled its most recent album Panic Blooms, which is a good way to describe the band's sound and also the last 18 months of living in America. For about 15 years now, BMSR has dabbled in mischievous, fuzz-soaked psychedelia, garnering a cult following along the way. Everything the western Pennsylvania band does is coated in a sticky film, including the processed vocals of frontman Tobacco, who has made a name for himself as a solo artist in recent years. The band is an acquired taste, but one that fits the times. (Safe bet)
