Black Moth Super Rainbow - Panic Blooms
(Rad Cult)

Black Moth Super Rainbow have returned for their first full length of new material in 6 years, the spiraling Panic Blooms. Over the course of their career, BMSR have at best had their unwavering aesthetic locked in and at worst, have felt like a one trick pony. Time has been kind to these analog survivalists as their latest record is both foreign and familiar. It feels as if the group has turned their attention towards song-craft where they would typically react to sonic textures. Lyrically, Panic Bloomsattempts to form a narrative where in the past, even their best songs seemed more solipsistic or ecstatically one dimensional. Their trademark Velcro-laden grooves and lysergic bubblegum melodies are in check but are executed with a sense of strategy that feels new. It's 3 sides play out with a sort of slouched anxiety that feels like uncharted territory, most definitely a product of its time, and a welcome homecoming for a group that has been out of the conversation for too long.
