OT: New Music


A bunch of good new music has been released lately. I really dig The Sword's new record     9although not as much as the first two), I like the Jenny & Johnny stuff...but this is about something else. There is another band, very popular around here, and for whom I have had great respect and affection for a long while, that today has blown my ass off.

 

...Of Montreal - False Priest, may be the greatest album I have ever heard.

 

For one thing, it inspired a FanPost by me. But more importantly, for one band to cut a record that elicits reminiscences of Bowie, Abba, The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, The Cars, The Cure, Pink Floyd, Daft Punk, French Pop, Doo-Wop, Motown and Wall of Sound, Disco, Jazz, Electronica/Dance, etc.as well as hip-hop alliterations, literary references, and social commentary, often on the same track, and with an amazing cohesiveness and individual sound such that you know who it is right away, is such an accomplishment in the era of cookie-cutter radio pablum, I can't get over it. I just can't.

You're welcome for the Andres Torres of sentences.
