Psychedelic Rock - Black Moth Super Rainbow, TOBACCO, Demon Queen

Illustrations by Ryan Haran
I've been listening to this genre of modern psychedelic synth-rock for a few weeks now, and decided to put together a listing to make it more accessible for people. 

It's hard to describe exactly what it is: retro pastiche, psudo-acid visuals with a vintage synthesizer sound and use of vocoders- all sounding like they were recorded on to a VHS cassette, and left to bake in the sun for a decade. 

I like it, but your mileage my vary:

DEMON QUEEN - Love Hour Zero

Black Moth Super Rainbow- Gold Splatter

 Black Moth Super Rainbow - Smile the Day After Today

Black Moth Super Rainbow - Twin of Myself

 For more experimental psychedelic rock, check out this playlist I've put together over at SoundCloud:


 Black Moth Super Rainbow - Lost, Picking Flowers In The Woods (EP)

TOBACCO - Mystic Thickness (Album)

On a side note, much of the instruments, effects, and general psychedelic vibe coming out of BMSR/TOBACCO/Demon Queen fits with the spooky aesthetic found in the Memory Tapes Halloween mixes (Walk Me Home, 1-3):
