New Of Montreal, KEXP, 31 January 2005
I only have 2 seconds to do this but here is a new song from Of Montreal from KEXP. I will post more on this later but probably not until Monday.
Of Montreal – Suffer for Fashion (new song) from KEXP 31 Jan 2006 (3.36 MB)
Update: Ok, I wanted to get that posted before I had to catch a bus after work (I made the post and the bus – a good day) so I wasn’t able to put any more detail than the above, but I don’t think anyone has seen it yet anyway. So, as For the ‘Records’ reported, Of Montreal were live in the KEXP studios today. They chatted a bit and performed a few songs. This was the first, a new one which is going to appear on their new, partially recorded album (due out January 2007). The album has a title but I missed that. If they said the name of the song I missed that too. I also missed (although recorded) the songs off “The Sunlandic Twins” which they performed. And I left the original file on my work computer (which I will be away from until Monday) so I can’t find out the info and post the other songs. Pretty useless at the moment, aren’t I?
Anyway, KEXP archives its programs for two weeks (the Of Montreal performance started just after noon) so you can check it out later and they usually have their live performances archived as well but they don’t seem to have today’s show up yet (another Of Montreal performance can be streamed here). I will try to get the full thing up next week. If anyone caught the title of this please leave me a comment.

The new album slated to be out in January 2007 is titled “Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?” And I am informed that have a tour EP and a 7″ out and are producing a remix record. For more of Of Montreal see You Ain’t No Picasso’s post of The Covers Show by Of Montreal from January 18 2002 (although, being realistic, I am sure you if you found this you probably already read YANP).
