synth-pop

Artist: 
of Montreal
Label: 
Polyvinyl

Do you like sex? Because Kevin Barnes definitely does. Pitchfork describes of Montreal's new route as a "sweaty concoction of synthesizers and seduction," and ever since HISSING FAUNA, ARE YOU THE DESTROYER? of Montreal has completely disassociated itself with the "innocent" Elephant-6 pop of SUNLANDIC TWINS and backward. Each song schizophrenically changes modes every verse or so, but all are clearly linked to R&B/Funk influences.
