With Black Moth Super Rainbow on indefinite hiatus, frontman Tom Fec is free to pursue other things, namely his Tobacco project, which gave us the album Fucked Up Friends a few years ago.

Imagine if Boards of Canada became spastic. They started listening to Black Moth Super Rainbow, inherited ADD, and became spastic, and then started making new music. That describes how Tom extrapolates the BMSR sound onto Tobacco, making it a step apart from the former band. Analog synths, tape machines, hip hop beats, cosmopolitan pop, and a touch of paranoia (albeit in the best way possible) all go into the Tobacco stew.

According to a recent story on Pitchfork, there's a new Tobacco album titled Maniac Meat due out on May 25th, on his current label home of Anticon. http://www.anticon.com/. It features an appearance from Beck on the tracks Grape Aerosmith and Fresh Hex.
