recommend me an album to start with please
and so happens to be one of the albums of the year for me, get it!
though i don't really like it
have you heard / do you like any of te earlier ones?
(i think sunlandic twins is the one that put me off them. But i thought they played the best set of the weekend at primavera, and really enjoyed it. came home, found i still dont like that album)
Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? (and 'Icons, Abstract Thee!')
The Sunlandic Twins
Satanic Panic In The Attic
If He Is Protecting Our Nation Who Will Protect Big Oil, Our Children
Coquelicot Asleep In The Poppies
Early 4-Track Recordings
The Gay Parade
The Bedside Drama: A Petite Tragedy
That's how I'd introduce them to someone's who does't really know a lot about OM. It's been real fucking interesting hearing the sound evolve over 10-or-so years, but for a new listener, I'd start with the 'now' and go back to the beginning.
I'd probably skip past 'Big Oil' in my "Introduce A Friend To of Montreal" lecture =]
or cherry peel, or the gay parade. Anything befor satanic panic is basically a completely different band but just as good.
Coquelicot Asleep In The Poppies if you want pop music.
please describe this band for me??
musically I mean.
but that's really lame. I don't know. They are super easy to listen to.
a mental breakdown illustrated through the mediums of electro and funk.
me or do Of Montreal sound very similar to now defunct uk band Clor ? (Suffer For Fashion at least)
nice description, but i'm none the wiser!!
