The Ottobar's got a solid Monday night affair, with Black Moth Super Rainbow rolling into town. Fans of fuzzy experimental synths of all shapes and beats shall rejoice.
Music with an oddball organic feel, bubbly rhythms are often accompanied by free-wheeling bass, keys and flutes. The band has put out four full lengths and various other releases, including a stellar joint LP with The Octopus Project.
Their most recent, Eating Us, is easily their most accessible to date. Eating Us could be considered their pop album, but don't expect a hit single to be released off it anytime soon. Much like it's predecessor Dandelion Gum, the new LP sports a positive feel with melodies soaked in sunshine. The acoustic accents are polished up a bit, as instrumentation seems to be used more the old fashioned way than in previous efforts. Peep the video for opening track "Born on the Day the Sun Didn't Rise" above.
Parts and Labor front man and rising solo artist Dan Friel will open, rounding out a great way to spend your Monday evening. Show is at the Ottobar and starts at 9.
