#32 of montreal – id engager

when we really should be writing our theses, sheela and i have spent much time instead listening to of montreal, amusing ourselves with george bataille‘s cameo on the epic “the past is a grotesque animal” and marveling at the vaudevillian absurdity of the “heimdalsgate like a promethean curse” video, both from last year’s emotionally draining indie-disco-pop breakthrough hissing fauna, are you the destroyer?. the band has come a long way from its early lo-fi pop to becoming one of the last-standing elephant six bands still alive and kicking in the scene. their next album is titled skeletal lamping, out this october 7 on polyvinyl, and the first single is coincidentally the album closer “id engager”, which propels off the hissing fauna tangent into an acid-drenched freudian brew of tribal disco.

  1. Gotta give props to any band that references Freud and Bataille so expertly.

  2. especially for rhyming bataille with “story of the eye”. why didn’t i think of that?

  3. This ain’t no disco!
