Black Moth Super Rainbow

Speaking from experience, I happen to know that the dark, bloody woods of Western Pennsylvania can produce some truly strange and singular creatures. Need proof? Have a listen to Black Moth Super Rainbow. Here's a band that might have blended into the soup of 1967's Haight Ashbury, but hailing from the rural pines as they do adds another level of (sometimes creepy, often beautiful) surrealism to their psychedelic, vocoder-heavy sound. Promoting their full-length Dandelion Gum, the band has landed a good run of opening sets with those kindred purveyors of weirdness The Flaming Lips in August & Sept., which should make for some of the most hands-down unique summer shows currently going. It may have taken the Magical Mystery Tour 40 odd years to make it to Pennsylvania, but BMSR makes it sound like the timing couldn't be better.
