Just about any band can create a “trippy” feel with a good delay pedal, but you can find a worthier standard for that descriptor in Black Moth Super Rainbow’s stretchy-brained stew of techno-inspired pulses and lo-fi yet smartly applied synths. The band’s songs are trusty sugar-balls that slowly dissolve into territory that’s disorienting at first and eventually becomes deliriously fun. Its 2009 releaseEating Us is almost as crazy as 2007’s Dandelion Gum—which was recently reissued with a whopping 14 bonus “extra flavor” tracks—but, like the band’s shows, cranks up the bass and drums to fatten up the groove within the multicolored meltdowns.
