Tobacco at Exit/In 

The Smoking Section

The Smoking Section
Tobacco is the frontman for Pittsburgh-based Black Moth Super Rainbow, so if you’re at all familiar with their weird electro-stoner rock, then you have a pretty good idea of what you’re getting into here. Tobacco’s creative apple hasn’t fallen too far from the proverbial tree, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. The darker tones and hip-hop-inspired beats draw a subtle but sufficient contrast to the warm fuzz of BMSR, making this feel like a respectable solo effort rather than mere hand-me-down B-sides. The nonsensical live performance will definitely raise a few eyebrows to say the least, but unsuspecting listeners will find themselves bobbing their heads in an introspective lull along with the eerie rhythms in no time. The bizarre imagery and haunting beta-inspired tunes may be too much for some, but those who join in will feel right at home with rest of the freaks.
