I am starting to think I need to listen to my friends more often when it comes to their taste in music, as this band is one I (mistakenly) passed over. Black Moth Super Rainbow (BMSR), whose mother ship typically lays in Pittsburgh, has landed in Columbus and will play a show tonight at Skully’s, currently celebrating their 11 year anniversary. The band’s sound is other worldly, something not of the boringness of Earth. It’s psychedelic, slightly dark, dancey, and quite honestly, on their latest album, perfect.

BMSR’s released their latest album, Cobra Juicy, in late October. It’s the latest soundtrack of my morning, mid-day, and evening. It’s also been the subject of my twitter posts and topics of conversations between myself and my music-obsessed friends. With names such as Tobacco, Bullsmear, and Ryan Graveface, this band remains an enigma in which I have become obsessed and haven not found the answer. Diving deeper and deeper into their discography, I am incredibly upset that I have not before listened to this brigade of psychedelics.

Cobra Juicy can be found on Spotify, but you’re going to want to buy this one. Their single, “I Think I’m Evil” is the song I, for the past two weeks, turn on as soon as I wake up in the morning, and is the last I listen to before sleep.

Tickets tonight are $15 and can be purchased at the door or here. I let the bizarre name fool me, but their stellar music has made this show a “must-go” for tonight.
