After all the buzz around Of Montreal that Pitchfork did, it was almost unforgivable not to listen to “Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?“. The band of Kevin Barnes (from Elephant 6 collective)  went over a smooth reinvention of their sound, more distant from the previous glam/psychedelic/experimental albums.

Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?

Of Montreal’s album starts with some vibrant tunes (particularly the first one, “Suffer for Fashion”) reaching a turning point in the extra-long “The Past Is a Grotesque Animal”,  and revealing a new musical rainbow in the second half of the album, that i’m still learning how to appreciate.

But it surely is one of the greatest albums of 2007.
