MP3 of the Day from Black Moth Super Rainbow, Playing Poplife at White Room on August 1

Black Moth Super Rainbow's recently released Eating Us may not have lovingly upset as many stomachs as 2007's eerily chewy Dandelion Gum. But that's only because people are beginning to build up a taste for the Western Pennsylvania outfit's trippy brand of vivid wildness. Sure, the kooky quintet's latest longplayer seems almost sedate in comparison to the band's previous efforts, but that doesn't mean it is in any way less adventurous.

From the vocoder-voiced "Born on a Day the Sun Didn't Rise" through the almost jaunty "Twin of Myself" (just laid open by The Go Team!), and on to the voiceless and ghostly "Smile the Day After Today," this wistful wander of an album traipses over fields few have ever had the imagination to tread. Think of it as heady music for folks with a head for blowing their minds. Then sit back and revel in the overwhelming wonder of it all.

After the jump, get details about the band's upcoming appearance at Poplife, as well as an MP3 of "Born on a Day the Sun Didn't Rise."
