of Montreal's follow up to their 2007 manic depressive oeuvre Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? is not scheduled for release until this October, but you can whet your appetite with the latest single Id Engager from their upcoming lexicon-expanding, electro dance pop masterpiece Skeletal Lamping.
oM's frontman and mastermind Kevin Barnes shares his thoughts on Lamping here.
One of the things (besides the rampant double bass guitar parts) that I love most about of Montreal is the combination of dance lesson and vocabulary lesson that comes with every album. As a fun exercise I decided to list the words from the last few albums that required me to pull out the old dictionary; anathema, antediluvian, opalsecent, deliquesce, coquet, somnolent, vicissitudes, and lysergic.
p.s. Did anybody else notice there were no nipples in this publicity shot, though it should have between 3 and 4.5?
