Video: Black Moth Super Rainbow - "Windowshield Smasher"

I loves me some Black Moth Super Rainbow.  They make what I think of as "multi-mood" music.  It's good for a long car ride and works just as well for lying immobile on the ground.  The band just released a video for the new song  "Windowshield Smasher" which will appear on their upcoming EP Windowshield Smasher (August 28th) as well as their 5th and upcoming full length album Cobra Juicy (October 23rd).

 For this new album the band decided to release it on their own Rad Cult label and started a Kickstarter to help fund it.  Now normally I find Kickstarter to be annoying and a bit of a cop-out in regards to artists/people "finding a way" to release their art but I would like a new BMSR album, so I can't complain.  and its actually one of the more interesting Kickstarter campaigns I've seen in a long time.  The album was recorded at home and is looking to be released in various ways.

Pre-orders comes with a giant Orange latex mask (as seen in the video) that one of its teeth is actually a USB that contains the new album on it digitally.  Some pre-order packages will also come with poloraids, sketches and customized vinyl sleeve art.  Good stuff.  Be sure to read more about it on their Kickstarter page.  If that isn't enough, maybe this video by Eric Wareheim (Tim & Eric) will help...
