iTunes Editors’ Notes

When was the last time a record really freaked you out, as in an auditory acid trip without the acid? Can’t remember? That’s fine; because you’ll have a hard time forgetting Dandelion Gum once it burrows its way into your subconscious, treating the poor little bugger like the host of some psychedelic parasite. Not just any psychedelic parasite, either. Try one that speaks through Air-y (the downtempo duo, not the stuff we breathe) analog installations and incoherent, yet incredibly lucid, paranoid android poetry. Flower power phrases like “We miss you in the summertime” and “I love the sunlight/You love the flowers,” all delivered in a disembodied monotone Daft Punk would appreciate. With band member names like Tobacco and Father Hummingbird, you’d think this was a harmless, imaginary soundtrack to Fraggle Rock: The Feature Film or something. Only it’s something much more sinister — something we’ll let you figure out once you’re caught up in a funnel cloud somewhere between Nico’s Chelsea Girl and Air’s Moon Safari.

A albums must be bought, so by Dandelion Gum!

Best of 2007

Wow. A cross between Tortoise, Cocteau Twins and Air does not completely describe Black Moth Super Rainbow's "Dandelion Gum", but it's close. This is an audio experience and by far the best album of 2007. When the Sun Grows On Your Tongue, Sun Lips, Rollerdisco, The Afternoon Turns Pink, Lollposicord, They Live In The Meadow, Forever Heavy and Drippy Eye are all great. Sun Lips is a perfect song. This music is art. Music that audibly projects images into the air (there's a reason they play small films at their live shows), these young ladies and gentlemen indeed create wonderful music.

Another step forward

Buidling on 'Start a People', Black Moth Super Rainbow tread some new water by enhancing the live instrumentation with this release. Still an ace trip into experimental electronics. Think mash-up between Boards of Canada and Beck.


Formed: 2002 in Pittsburgh, PA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

A notoriously enigmatic band hailing from Pennsylvania, Black Moth Super Rainbow made waves on the indie circuit in the early 2000s with their brand of otherworldly, psychedelic indie pop. The project began in Pittsburgh in 2002, and expanded to include five members (Tobacco, the Seven Fields of Aphelion, Power Pill Fist, Iffernaut, and Father Hummingbird) in the following year. Packing a sound that nodded to contemporary retro-chic electronic acts like Air and the Octopus Project (who they would...
