From their press:
There nearly wasn't a new Black Moth record at all. In hindsight, 2009's Eating Us seemed too soft, too '70s. Tobacco felt he'd lost control of his main project's sound and so focused on "solo" work. But while crafting 2010's depraved beat beast Maniac Meat, he found himself writing more freely, rediscovering the sickly sour to Black Moth's sweet. Then he realized, fuck it, this thing is his baby anyhow. He cleaned house on the live band—now Seven Fields of Aphelion, Iffernaut, Ryan Graveface and Bullsmear—and got to work, alone, on a brand new BMSR album. Then he threw that one away and made Cobra Juicy.
Opener "Windshield Smasher" lays down the difference with a hefty thud. The grinding electric guitar and smacking drumbeat play like de-glammed arena metal before the gooped-up electronics arrive. It’s a more aggressively skewed pop, instantly followed by the drop-top drift of "Like a Sundae," whose melted melodies ride atop a sturdy bed of modern blips and bloops. "Hairspray Heart" is another early highlight, boasting a thickly Rick Rubinesque beat while Tobacco wickedly chants, "I can hypnotize you." Later, "Gangs in the Garden" splices '80s robo-pop with DFA dance for more beautifully upbeat violence.
