HOT New Music : Of Montreal – Skeletal Lamping

I was never a huge Of Montreal fan, I liked a couple songs here and there, but the new one, Skeletal Lamping has me hooked. It is an amazing blend of 70’s rock,soul and disco and current electronic dance sounds all melded together with an editing style that sounds like a combination of White Album era Beatles and Girl Talk. It’s obvious all those nights of hosting live karaoke shows have seeped into their musical consciousness. Chock full of NSFW lyrics that rival Prince in his lascivious prime, it’s a classic mix of sex and rock and roll which the surreal cover art depicts pretty accurately. Here’s the opening and closing tracks courtesy of Spin & Rolling Stone to give you a small taste, but the best songs lie in between, and I hate to be a tease but unfortunately I need to leave you to your own internet saavy to hear them before the October release date. Some of my favs at the moment are For Our Elegant Caste, the horn infused Eluardian Instance and the smooth soul of Plastis Wafers.
