Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer - 2024 Reissue

    Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? is of Montreal's landmark 2007 album. The album defined of Montreal's career and continues to be hailed as a classic. Pitchfork called the album "Ceaselessly fascinating and inexhaustibly replayable," honoring it with "Best New Music" and placing it in the Top 5 albums of 2007.

    With Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?, of Montreal has created its masterpiece. It is an irresistible and remarkable album, sounding like a logical extension of the erratic indie-disco sounds of The Sunlandic Twins. However, Hissing Fauna is also the most personal of Montreal album to date, with Kevin Barnes, lead of Montreal songwriter, pouring tremendous amounts of emotion, heartbreak, frustration and elation into its twelve tracks.

    Written and recorded primarily during what they call "an insane year," Hissing Fauna sees Barnes adopt a new writing style. It's an unabashedly autobiographical attempt from a songwriter whose early material tended towards characters and story-songs. Barnes continues down the whimsical pop-funk path, while changing up its lyrical scope; and Hissing Fauna balances its poppy nature while showcasing brutal and unflinching honesty.

          Of Montreal / Casiokids

          Expecting To Fly / London Zoo

          This limited edition Record Store Day 7”. (1000 copies worldwide) pairs indie‐pop virtuosos of Montreal with the Norwegian language electro‐pop/ afrobeat tunesmiths Casiokids. Over the last fifteen years, of Montreal has imitated everyone (86 covers and counting), while developing its own inimitable sound ‐‐ a unique mixture of indie‐pop, glam‐rock, funk, and R&B. Though private and reserved, frontman Kevin Barnes wears his fame like a feathered fedora: on the children's show Yo Gabba Gabba, in collaborations with Spike Jonze, on stage spanking pigs with Susan Sarandon, on horseback in NYC's Roseland Ballroom, and even spontaneously performing six songs nude during a concert in Las Vegas. On this 7” Kevin’s cover of Buffalo Springfield’s classic “Expecting to Fly” is raw and heartfelt. With a bizarre effect created by delay and the honesty of a simple arrangement it is a beautiful take on a great song. Casiokids bring us their new single “London Zoo” which will be included as a bonus track when Moshi Moshi releases their debut reocd “Topp Stemning På Lokal Bar” in the UK. Hailing from the same celebrated Bergen scene that has produced Datarock and Annie, Casiokids were so‐named for the beat‐up old keyboards with which the band members first conceived their club‐ready sound. Formed with the intention of making electronic music more visual, the band has since added guitar and drums to produce a collection of incredibly catchy tunes often sung in their native Norwegian and influenced by afro‐beat, techno and out‐and‐out pop. You may not understand the words but the music speaks for itself.

          The Bedside Drama A Petite Tragedy

            Originally released in 1998, Of Montreal's second full-length features uncredited appearances by members of Neutral Milk Hotel and The Late B.P. Helium. The album was the first where Of Montreal built characters around concepts. Although not as developed as later of Montreal concept albums, "The Bedside Drama: A Petite Tragedy" is infused with Vaudevillian elements that foreshadowed of Montreal's break-out albums "The Gay Parade" and "Coquelicot Asleep In The Poppies: A Variety of Whimsical Verse". According to All Music Guide, the album 'marked a crucial stage in the evolution from the lo-fi garage pop of Cherry Peel to the ambitious rock carnival of The Gay Parade and cemented of Montreal's status as one of the most creatively relevant groups of the late 90s.'
