[Review] Tobacco @ Glasslands Gallery 6/2/2010

Tobacco performed in front of a packed crowd at Glasslands Gallery the Tuesday night before last to celebrate his recent release Maniac Meat. With a little assistance from Maux Boyle of The Seven Fields of Aphelion, the two threw down some heavy beats that kept the crowd dancing till the very end. The stage at Glasslands was an excellent setting to enjoy some funky 8-bit bleeps and bloops, complete with what appeared to be big puffy clouds made of garbage bags on the back wall curving up above their heads. 


I was impressed with just how much Tobacco was able to manipulate the instruments he had in front of him. I've seen plenty of people rock omnichords and other various tools of the electronic trade, but never have I seen someone so easily manipulate sounds that it almost made me feel like a failure for not being able to pick up the craft so carelessly myself. I was a little disappointed that I couldn't make out what he was projecting into the clouds above him to accompany the music, but I was honestly so wrapped up watching him and Maux do what they do best that I didn't mind. 

You would be a fool to not catch Tobacco when he tours this fall. Seriously. Or for not picking up Maniac Meat. It's seriously such an addictive record it should almost be illegal.

[Download] TOBACCO - Sweatmother x Stretch Your Face

Finally, Tobacco finally release the first official leak off his upcoming album that is not a side project, Maniac Meat, titled Sweatmother. This song is fresh for death and above you can check out some live video (courtesy of slumdonk of the BMSRFan Boards) and since I'm in a better mood another track off the Fucked Up Friends 2 DVD titled Stretch Your Face, also on the new album Maniac Meat.
