Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “We Will Commit Wolf Murder” by of Montreal

of Montreal formed in 1996 around key member Kevin Barnes and was part of the Elephant 6 collective that gave us the bands Apples In Stereo, Olivia Tremor Control, Beulah and Neutral Milk Hotel. Their sound is a little bit Prince, a little bit Bowie, some Queen, a heaping helping of prog rock and an ample dose of acid to add a dash of color to the mix. Their psychedelic album artwork comes courtesy of Kevin’s brother, David Barnes, and the albums come donned in some of the most elaborate packaging I’ve seen in years with die-cut posters, custom record labels, colorful inner sleeves and artwork on the inside pockets of the gatefold. This song comes from their upcoming album, “Paralytic Stalks,” which comes out in February. They will be on tour this spring with Polyvinyl Records label mates Deerhoof.
