The Stargazer Lilies new video premiere

Watch “Endless Days” on Vimeo or at Baeble Music.


“…a placid dream of a music video.”


A great dance party is a thing of beauty, but a good soundtrack for the comedown can be just as vital. After nearly a decade on the trippy dancefloor of Soundpool, guitarist/drummer/bassist/producer John Cep and singer/bassist Kim Field set off from that New York five-piece to take respite in the warm and woozy sounds of a new shoegaze-infused project, The Stargazer Lilies. And with their debut album, We Are the Dreamers, they’re letting their days of disco beats slip away into memory with style.

Linking up with Tobacco of Black Moth Super Rainbow and live drummers EJ DeCoske and Johnny Lancia, they’ve teased influences like the French pop ofAir and the shoegaze of Lush and Slowdive out to create a record of dripping dream pop. Here, they’ve pared down their sound to Kim’s airy vocals, reverb-washed drums and a fuzzy, swelling ether of effects-laden guitar and bass. The resulting punch-drunk collection, from the gentle melody of “Del Rey Mar” to the sluggish and nearly indecipherable drone of “Light of Day,” is coated in the disquieting patina that Tobacco brings to BMSR, though in this case the mood he creates is more melancholy than sinister.

And isn’t that just how it feels, that limbo between a real good party and the morning after — sickly sweet, a little muzzy and ready, before too long, to do it all again.

Watch The New Super NSFW Video From Demon Queen (Tobacco + Zackey Force Funk)

ANNOUNCE STRING OF LIVE DATES; EXORCISE TAPE OUT AUGUST 6TH ON RAD CULT (NEW RELEASE DATE)

363

 

Beware the Demon Queen, that lady of the night who enters your soul and doesn’t relinquish it until you’ve given in completely. She bends men to her will, a modern day succubus who lives in the seedy strip clubs and back alleys of every city. No one is safe, not the holy, not our children, and not men or women. Demon Queen is the duo of Tobacco (of Black Moth Super Rainbow) and Zackey Force Funk. This is the first video off their debut oddity, Exorcise Tape, out August 6th on Rad Cult (new release date). The video for “Demon Practice” shows the citizens of Anytown, USA getting tormented by the titular character in this story of lust, damnation, and brain wave control. It was premiered today on Dangerous Minds. Put the kids and employers to bed, because this one is not appropriate for their eyes.

Also, some poor soul said the wrong words from the Necronomicon and unleashed Demon Queen onto an unsuspecting public. Demon Queen has risen from the depths and is conspiring on a string of live shows on the west coast. Catch the duo of Tobacco and Zackey Force Funk performing the malevolent melodies of Demon Queen in select cities, as well as some solo Tobacco dates.

“What’s unique about Black Moth Super Rainbow is the balance achieved between the grotesque and the beautiful. This is not as easy as it sounds.” – Pitchfork

“…Cobra Juicy drips with the group’s trademark heady synthesizers, as well as infectious hooks and punchy electronica to craft their most melodic and accessible record to date.” – FILTER

“Black Moth Super Rainbow have over the course of several albums set themselves a consistent task, with heady results: discovering what a psychedelic soundtrack for the 21st century sounds like. Their latest effort, Cobra Juicy…nails that trademark pastoral-yet-greasy groove.” – BlackBook

“It’s the Black Moth Super Rainbow recording we’ve been waiting for…” – Under The Radar

SF Weekly Premieres Maus Haus Track “Hey Jean”

Listen to “Hey Jean” Via SF Weekly

San Francisco’s Maus Haus have just released their new EP ‘Light Noise’. Released on new imprint Lavish Habits, the EP perfectly captures the band’s electrifying live energy.

Maus Haus’ sound is a concoction of Kraftwerk, the Beach Boys, and Sonic Youth steeped in a solution of glitchy noise, dirty drums, and buzzy synthesizers. Through this heady mix, the band is still eminently approachable, with catchy vocals, and moving rhythms. The resulting sound is patently unique, yet strangely familiar.

Since the release of 2009’s sprawling Lark Marvels, the band has progressed from a stage-filling 7-person ensemble to a powerful 4-piece with each member attending to multiple instruments, recalling the frenetic live performances of Battles.

Maus Haus has supported Crystal Castles, Dengue Fever, Autolux, Black Moth Super Rainbow, !!!, Javelin, School of Seven Bells, on both coasts and between. The band was awarded “Best New Synth Rockers” from SF Weekly, and “Band of the Year” from the Deli Magazine. In 2010, the band shared San Francisco’s Treasure Island Music Festival main stage with artists such as LCD Soundsystem, Die Antwoord, and Holy Fuck.

Black Moth Super Rainbow Get Cobra Juicy 11/10 @ Mr. Smalls in Pittsburgh

Stream Black Moth Super Rainbow’s “Window Smasher” single

Hometown heroes, Black Moth Super Rainbow, return in triumph to Mr. Smalls in Millvale/Pittsburgh on November 10,2012. With their new effort, “Cobra Juicy” on it’s way, BMSR will bring their special brand of experimental music with a more aggressive edge this time around.

The roller rink is cracked. Summer is seeping in. The lacquered floor boards are all warped, but the disco ball spins. Ladies and gentlemen, Black Moth Super Rainbow has left the woods, and the man called Tobacco lords over a gang of demon skaters from the DJ booth of some greased up auditorium in a lost corner of Pittsburgh. The band’s fifth LP Cobra Juicy declares death to hippies, excising all things flower power and tightening up what sprawl there was into a nastily bright pile of fuzzed guitar, live bass, hot synths and stubby rhythms—eleven pieces of hard candy licked, dipped in dirt, and wrapped up for you.

There nearly wasn’t a new Black Moth record at all. In hindsight, 2009’s Eating Us seemed too soft, too ’70s. Tobacco felt he’d lost control of his main project’s sound and so focused on “solo” work. But while crafting 2010’s depraved beat beast Maniac Meat, he found himself writing more freely, rediscovering the sickly sour to Black Moth’s sweet. Then he realized, fuck it, this thing is his baby anyhow. He cleaned house on the live band—now Seven Fields of Aphelion, Iffernaut, Ryan Graveface and Bullsmear—and got to work, alone, on a brand new BMSR album. Then he threw that one away and made Cobra Juicy.
Opener “Windshield Smasher” lays down the difference with a hefty thud. The grinding electric guitar and smacking drumbeat play like de-glammed arena metal before the gooped-up electronics arrive. It’s a more aggressively skewed pop, instantly followed by the drop-top drift of “Like a Sundae,” whose melted melodies ride atop a sturdy bed of modern blips and bloops. “Hairspray Heart” is another early highlight, boasting a thickly Rick Rubinesque beat while Tobacco wickedly chants, “I can hypnotize you.” Later, “Gangs in the Garden” splices ’80s robo-pop with DFA dance for more beautifully upbeat violence.
There are quieter moments too, but Cobra Juicy lets them live in their own time. “Psychic Love Damage” takes its name from the
scrapped album and—along with its neighbor “We Burn,” combines rattling slide guitar with cascades of crystal synth and bitdamaged MPC drums. The aptly named “Dreamsicle Bomb” is glassy and gorgeous, its reverbed notes and shuffling drums
eventually clarifying in a bassy breakdown suggestive of Matthew Dear’s productions. “Smash all the mailboxes and headlights,”
Tobacco whispers in a snakelike sibilance, while “Spraypaint” is surprisingly sweet— a love song Black Moth style.

In some ways, Cobra Juicy is the most personal Black Moth Super Rainbow record yet. In other ways, it kinda just wants you to get out there, strap on some wheels, sew a back-patch onto a denim vest, and start a Warriors-style gang tailored to whatever overheated dystopia you call home in 2012. The album will be self-released and funded via Kickstarter, where fans will be able to purchase Cobra Juicy in actual mask form—a latex rictus modeled after the possessed citrus on the cover, music on a USB tooth jammed into the grinning maw. Also, for $10,000, Tobacco will throw you your own roller disco. Really.
