Last week, we spoke to Black Moth Super Rainbow main man Tobacco about his erotic centaur alter-ago and, perhaps more importantly, his band’s brand new crunched-out, Vocoder-encoded, psych-beat opus of an album, Cobra Juicy. The Kickstarter-backed release was funded in spades — $125K raised after asking for $45K, not an Amanda Palmer-level windfall, but still — thanks both to the Pittsburg-area group’s ravenous cult of followers, and BMSR’s packaging creativity. Cobra Juicy was offered not only in the traditional formats (including a limited lenticular-covered vinyl version), but as a terrifying latex mask embedded with a tooth-shaped USB stick. While you may not have access to the headgear, the album is streaming in its entirety below thanks to Paste. Crank it and bring Halloween to your home or office a couple of weeks early.
