Black Moth Super Rainbow Dandelion Gum
- Words: Justin Hopper
- Label: Grave Face
Black Moth Super Rainbow makes records like a broken mirror: Each shard's reflection is both a piece of the greater whole, and a complete image within itself. So while Dandelion Gum indulges in each of BMSR's elemental parts-the twisted fuzz-pop of "Melt Me," the pan-pipe electro-hippie blur of "When the Sun Grows on Your Tongue," the freak-folk asymmetry of "Spinning Cotton Candy in a Shack Made of Shingles"-it is also merely a piece in a long-range plan. For the most part, this involves beautifully channeling the kind of monolithic low fidelity beloved by bedroom psy-kick enthusiasts everywhere: like Syd and Sebadoh, or The Incredible String Band as performed by Ween in a room full of rubber cement.
