every day is halloween

scary music

there are the standards, like horror movie themes, and there are the horror bands like the misfits and zombina and the skeletones, and there are the novelty songs such as 'monster mash' by bobby 'boris' picket, and there is dark ambient electronica which is indeed some seriously scary sounding shit. but every now and then comes a band that is just plain freaky weird and scary, but in a good way.

pittsburgh's electronica band black moth super rainbow is such a plain ass freaky weird and scary, but in a good way. bmsr's music sounds quite a lot like the psychedelic groups from the '60s with a heavy emphasis on love and harmony. their imagery is fairly surreal, for example a song title from their album dandelion gum goes like this, 'jump in my mouth and breathe the stardust'.

not all of bmsr's sound is so touchy feely. below is the video to their song 'born on a day the sun didn't rise'. the sound matches the crazy, fucked up imagery of the video. watch it and you'll see what i mean. it's not for the faint of heart. great for halloween. even the great pumpkin upon seeing this video might shrivel up in fright.
