Of Montreal’s lousy with sylvianbriar

of montreal

If you haven’t listened to Of Montreal in a while, I don’t blame you. Their last few albums had some good tracks like Feminine Effects and and, well, hmmm, but were basically unlistenable.

Anyhow, Kevin Barnes must have read my texts because in this new album, he actually writes songs that have a structure that’s pleasing to the ear. The new album is filled with songs that are filled with his typical dense lyrics about who knows what exactly

From Obsidian Currents:

There is a virus in your tenets / Don’t be naive, you know it’s true / And if you don’t protect yourself / Obsidian currents / Will devour you

But it’s catchy, interesting and a fun album. Worth a listen to.

Pitchfork rated lousy with sylvianbriar a 7.4 (out of 10), quite a step up from their previous reviews of 5.8 and 4.6 for Daughter of Cloud and Paralytic Stalks.
