- I’m just learning of the band Black Moth Super Rainbow and boy have I been missing out. They do this crazy psychedelic, spaced-out pop stuff that is catchy and experimental at the same time. The singer is almost always hooked up to a vocoder, which I can take or leave I suppose, but it actually fits very well into the backing landscapes. The band recently played a show here, at a place called The Turf Club in something called “Frogtown” (or… “Midtown”), which apparently was a massive success.
Here’s their official site.
- One thing that was lost in the 10 year anniversary of 9/11 is the fact that Kabul is still massive mess of a war-zone. Indeed, the entire country of Afghanistan is.

That’s the problem (one of the many) with how we consume our media today, we forget about things only weeks after they happened unless they’re affecting us directly. I suppose that might happen without our system of consumption anyways, but it is very hard to think about how Japan is doing in the September world of global news.
