After the band’s recent Dandelion Gum (Graveface) release, there has been something of a Black Moth Super Rainbow insurgence amongst everyone from high-level hip-hop fanatics to neo-psych, Aquarius Records clients. The Pittsburgh-based group members (The Seven Fields of Aphelion, Power Pill Fist, Iffernaut, Father Hummingbird, and Tobacco, all of whom have solo projects under their respective monikers) have already amassed tours with the likes of Aesop Rock and The Flaming Lips, bringing rural psych-pop to huge stages across the US. XLR8R caught up with Tobacco to see what ten records inspired the band’s analog invasion.

Dandelion Gum is out now on Graveface. Graveface
