It happens between five and ten times a year. I get obsessed about a new band I discover. Right now, it’s Of Montreal, the cool psychedelic pop band from Athens Georgia. How have I never heard them before?
Anyway I got an advance copy of their new record, Hissing Fauna, and it is simply the best new thing I’ve heard in a long time (maybe since the Arctic Monkeys?). I realize Of Montreal is not new to many of you, but they are to me.
I posted one song already and I feel compelled to post another. The songs are very different from each other. None sound anything like the ones before them. Which is why the record is so cool.
This one is called She’s A Rejector. How about that riff that kicks off the song and stays around for the whole thing?
