Black Moth Super Rainbow

Cobra Juicy (Rad Cult)

With increased production value and coherent construction, Cobra Juicy represents a designer drug compared to Black Moth Super Rainbow's back catalog of LSD-soaked synth pop. A basic structure of live drums, rock bass, and slide guitar comes topped with heaps of push-key counter melodies that sound like both a cosmic vortex and canned laser noises. Vocals through a vocoder heave breathy, loud, and so dominating that they mortar a wall of artificiality that won't let passion through. Instead, we're treated to a blissful numbness, which is perfect for those who came here for the whacked out waveforms. (Sun., Yellow stage, 9pm)
