Tobacco+Philip Seymour Hoffman
Black Moth Super Rainbow dude Tobacco just outperformed his entire band with his gorgeous/disgusting second album, Maniac Meat. It's a burst of all the rainbow vocoders and crunch-'n'-munch fuzz of the best BMSR tracks, but has a hip-hop-centric backbeat that totally rings our Sleigh Bells. Oh yeah, and Beck is on it for some reason. Opener Philip Seymour Hoffman is not the Academy Award winning actor, but another dude who likes drum machines and distortion pedals. With Blast Off.
