CD of the Month: Dreamend

CD of the Month: Dreamend

When you listen to the music of Black Moth Super Rainbow (BMSR) you can tell that it is the culmination of many different sounds and styles. The release recently by Tobacco provided an explanation of the darker and more electronic elements in the sound. Now comes the latest released from band member (and the only Chicago-based member) Dreamend aka Ryan Graveface. It’s clear while listened through So I Ate Myself, Bite by Bite (Graveface Records, 8/10/10) that Ryan supplies the more the folk-ladden, banjo-soaked moments of BMSR. This album is a pure and gentle psychedelic freakout, but it is not without an element of the darkness and derangement that you might expect from BMSR. Complete with bells, guitar, organ, and the humble and honest vocals of Graveface this album is the soundtrack to a campfire attended by zombies and other creatures.

So I Ate Myself Bite by Bite will be released on the 10th by Graveface Records and the LP version will be presented like a phenakistoscope, a classic Victorian animation machine. The LP was designed by William Schaff and will be a sight to behold.
