Of Montreal

Athens, GA, indie pop outfit Of Montreal has been making wildly amusing records for a decade, but only recently has the group has upped the ante on its live shows and thrown the kind of bitchin' dance parties typically reserved for state-mate James Brown. Bandleader and primary archivist Kevin Barnes has been upping the BPMs and increasing the band's diet of electronic drum programming, all masterfully contoured to the tune of over-the-top catchy songs and whimsical English-major lyrics. The group's latest album "Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?" adds another massive chapter to what is fast becoming one of avant-pop's most intriguing discographies.
