As a member of psychedelic/electronic indie pop outfit Black Moth Super Rainbow, enigmatic Pennsylvania-based artist Tobacco casts summery spells with analog synths and tape machines.
As a solo artist, Tobacco employs many of the same styles and strategies that fuel his work with the band, but with a darker, more fractured edge. Integrating elements of hip-hop, electro, and experimental rock, he released his full-length debut album, Fucked Up Friends, on the Anticon label in 2008. His next foray into the solo realm came in 2010 with the release, also on Anticon, of Maniac Meat. The album featured guest vocals from Beck, plus a lot of weird noises. Tobacco kept busy the next few years, appearing on a Black Moth Super Rainbow album (Cobra Juicy) in 2012, remixing White Zombie's "Thunder Kiss '65," and producing Demon Queen's Exorcise Tape album. After jumping to Ghostly International, Tobacco released his third solo album, Ultima II Massage, in 2014. After its release, he began working on another album but soon hit a creative wall. He stepped away from music, going so far as to spend an entire year without plugging in any of his gear, but with distance he rediscovered his musical spark. His next album came quickly and saw him reverting to an old technique of recording tracks on cassette and then dropping them on a sampler. Sweatbox Dynasty was the result, and it was issued by Ghostly in August of 2016. In 2017, Tobacco's Rad Cult label released Ripe & Majestic, a sprawling 24-track LP of outtakes and instrumentals of tracks or remixes he produced for other artists. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi
