Black Moth Super Rainbow: “Sun Lips”

Pittsburgh acid-psych poppers Black Moth Super Rainbow have a new album coming out. Dandelion Gum is due in May, but here’s an early preview. They’re also streaming a song from their 2008(?) album on their myspace

MP3: Black Moth Super Rainbow – Sun Lips
Now here’s a song so deliciously trippy that it should come with sugar cubes and paper blotters. To call “Sun Lips” hypnotic is pretty well on the money, but it’s only part of the story. If the Flaming Lips ever decide to embrace their real freakiness and abandon pop music all together, they’ll probably wind up sounding a bit like Black Moth Super Rainbow.
