Rock & Pop, Seasonal Special Happenings

Tobacco/The Stargazer Lilies/Forest Management

When: Mon., April 28, 8:30 p.m. 2014

“I do what I do and curate what comes out,” Tobacco (real name: Tom Fec) told Scene last year as he was touring with Black Moth Super Rainbow, though he was sure to add: “I just feel what I do doesn’t belong in the music world.” And it’s not hard to see why he might say that. His latest solo outing, Ultima II Massage, only continues Tobacco’s ongoing odyssey to rip apart all previous material and smash a galactic brick through the windows of his electronic influences (whatever in the world they might be). The new stuff is probably less listener-friendly than 2013’s “Hairspray Heart” or “Windshield Smasher.” These songs rattle analog bones and splash dark shadows on everything in their immediate vicinity. One gets the feeling, whilst listening to “Eruption (Gonna Get My Hair Cut at the End of the Summer),” that Tobacco is willing to throw everything and the kitchen sink and the entire subterranean plumbing apparatus into the virginal ear holes of anyone daring enough to put the needle to this record. Good stuff. Proceed with caution. (Sandy)
