#128 tobacco – truck sweat

tobacco

i’ve been listening to tobacco‘s (from black moth super rainbow) debut solo album fucked up friends for quite a while, and i can’t help but feel this album sounds like the long-lost electronica cousin of dan friel‘s ghost town. both are extremely short in length, comprise mostly instrumental tracks, and spend the entire album focused solely on developing a sound, rather than blossoming an idea. but while dan friel explores a peculiar kitchen blender meets neutral milk hotel sound, tobacco plays instead with analog synths and tape machines to create a distinctly beat-heavy soundscape. a deliberately paranoid beat, for example, drives through the entirety of “truck sweat”, which plays out into a delightfully schizophrenic symphony that lasts all but three minutes. that’s all it needs, really.
