This follow-up to their intensely bright colour of life release Dandelion Gum (Graveface Records, 2007) is yet another chapter in the book that is Pittsburgh-based noise-pop collective Black Moth Super Rainbow. Of course it's weird and the band members have made-up aliases and it's a touch bit contrived and the song names are a sugary sweet flavour of sinister and that's not going to make everyone like them... But they have enlisted Dave Fridmann as a producer (who has worked with Flaming Lips, Mogwai, Sparklehorse, and more recently MGMT, and others) to deliver their usual sound to a much larger yet refined scale. Their drums are now played by hands not computer chips and their armouries of synths and vocoders have been punished to a much greater extent - but while Dandelion Gum was drawn out to a lengthy 17 tracks, Eating Us has been kept to a more-concise and focused 12 tracks.  Continue reading this review HERE.
