Review/Photos: Black Moth Super Rainbow, The Hood Internet @ The Fillmore, 5/24/13

Photos by Julie Schuchard If it were any night other than Friday, a mashup set hardly would have been an acceptable opener for demonic psych-pop perfectionists Black Moth Super Rainbow. However, Chicago's The Hood Internet took advantage of the weekend vibe by dropping a glorified DJ set reminiscent of a high school dance party, after Oscillator Bug warmed up the stage. Steve Reidell (the man behind The Hood Internet) held it down as a solo bro on a MacBook Pro, tweaking nobs to fade between tracks while mouthing the lyrics to his own samples, backed by a panel [...]

From Black Moth Super Rainbow's Windshield Smasher EP, out yesterday, here's Odd Nosdam's remix of the title track. Compared to the original, Nosdam's take is slowed-down, with a head-nodding beat. Instead of the weird karaoke-lie effect created by a lot of remixes -- where the original components and the new elements feel like they never actually congealed -- this one could pass as an original work, and a good one at that. Check out BMSR's version below.

Sade Sundays: Wooden Shjips, Black Moth Super Rainbow, Darwinsbitch

We decided to do it at The Nature Food dispensary Mike works at. A shared warehouse in north Berkeley, it houses and packages a wide-range of mindbogglingly expensive grains, nuts and nutbutters. The insides were as sterile as expected; until Mike spilled a 10lb bag of $80 seeds on the floor. The middle room smelled like a farm. A fine place to hold the inaugural Sade Sundays for The Bay Bridged. (Read: Sade Sundays is essentially Mike and I writing checks our butts can't cash; we will be discussing music. Much like everyone does. Except we're calling it Sade Sundays [...]
