Nickelodeon Possibly Rips Off A Tobacco Song

August 20th, 2014
Comments Off

UPDATE: Commercial music producer Eric Robertson made a statement today about a Nickelodeon ad that allegedly ripped off a Tobacco song. He told Stereogum that he was originally commissioned to write the music for the Nickelodeon video, saying, “The reference track obviously was ‘Creepy Phone Calls.’ I produced seven different songs/versions in a similar style to use for the vid, but I wouldn’t rip it off so apparently they found someone else who would. It isn’t Nickelodeon’s fault. Nickelodeon hired out to an ad agency and the agency made all the calls. I won’t rip stuff off just to get a check.”

Tobacco took to Twitter to respond to Robertson,


before tweeting a Nickelodeon-inspired promo graphic for his September tour.

Demon Queen (TOBACCO & Zackey Force Funk) – Exorcise Tape

July 11th, 2013

Easy on the Strip Club, Hard on the Ears

Before you can even get into the pure, unadulterated underbelly of an album like Exorcise Tape, you must start from the bottom. Demon Queen came about through the sheer inspiration of hard times, a break up and a strip club, which Zackey Force Funk used as a place of decompression to get away from it all. Enter Black Moth Super Rainbow’s TOBACCO and the trading of music files and you have one sinister Exorcise Tape. Unlike trashy production compatriots Wallpaper., Demon Queen’s sleazy mix of vulgar lyrics and party-happy samples function sincerely rather than as a cheeky nod to the YOLO culture plaguing most contemporary dance music today.

Black Moth Super Rainbow W/ The Hood Internet

March 28th, 2013

Tuesday May 28th

Mohawk

Doors @ 6:30

$15 tickets

Heavy on the analog, and sometimes on keeping their band member identities under wraps via ninja outfits and low pulled hats,  Black Moth Super Rainbow sound like a kaleidoscope of psychedelia, folk, pop, and electronica. They’re no strangers to the Austin area, and it’s probably because they’re always playing to a full house here.

Check out Black Moth Super Rainbow here.
