The Return of the Of

By shane

Today is Tuesday the 23rd of January, which means that you need to march to your nearest record store and pick up the new OF MONTREAL record, "Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?"

For a band that's worn many hats through the years, this is far and away the strongest release of their current glam/dance phase. We've had a promo copy since September, and it's been tough to take it out of the CD player for the past 4 months. Could one of 2007's best records have come out before we've even announced the results of our 2006 poll?

Along with the solid effort comes solid backing from Polyvinyl Records, which includes the band's first non-animated video, for the single "Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse." And it's pure Of Montreal weird. Check it out:
