Malibu Ken is pure fun for total weirdos.
Earlier this month, indietronic maniac Tobacco released the instrumentals from his 2013 album with Demon Queen, Exorcise Tape (Esorcizzare Nastro). You'll likely be interested in this set if you dug the fuzzy, warped sounds of Tobacco's previous album, Ultima II Massage, as much as we did:
The new Tobacco album is one of the most demented sonic adventures I've gone on this year.
WATCH: Tobacco - "Streaker" Thanks to Eric Wareheim of "Tim and Eric" fame, the new Tobacco music video is one of the most twisted things I've seen in a long time. Disturbing masks, nudity, overwhelming edits, and freakish effects are among the many things that make this video a weird watch. All I can say is people are kinda weird.
Look out for Tobacco's next album, Ultima II Massage, on May 13th.
Oh, did I mention this video is SUPER FREAKIN' NSFW!!???! Unless you work at the massage parlor featured in this video, I guess...
Black Moth Super Rainbow frontman Tobacco will drop his third solo album Ultima II Massage next month, and from what we've heard so far, it's gonna be a filthy, scuzzy affair. Now, if you thought lead single "Eruption" wasn't filthy or scuzzy enough, this new one "Streaker" might just scratch that dirty itch of yours. This new song proffers perhaps Tobacco's heaviest instrumental yet - overdriven electronics buzzing, whirring, and crashing in every which way, and even the vocodered voice is decidedly distorted and nasty compared to the lightness and gentleness typically brought by Tobacco's vocals. He doesn't care if he's harshing our buzz this time around. In fact, I think he wants to, and that's oddly refreshing. Stream the track above and enjoy!
Ultima II Massage is out May 13 via Ghostly. Check out Anthony's thoughts on Tobacco's last LP here.
The neo-psych pop project Black Moth Super Rainbow is back with a new tune and an album announcement via SoundCloud. Stream the track "Spraypaint" above, which is, to me, one of the prettiest songs I've heard come out of the project. It features the usual set of punchy beats and breathy, heavily manipulated vocals, but the end result is very serene gentle.
