Of Montreal Announce Tour, Stream “She Ain’t Speakin’ Now”

Of Montreal have had a special place in my heart ever since I was a depressed teenager whose only emotionally outlet was happily singing along to (and yes, this is a real song title from The Early Four Track Recordings) “Dustin Hoffman Becomes Indignant And Wets Himself.” Though their style has not changed an incredible […]

Neutral Milk Hotel Tour To Be Full International Tour Through 2014

Well, maybe we won’t have to travel south. The announcement earlier this week of a Neutral Milk Hotel reunion had a small indication there would be more dates, saying there was “more to come,” but it was hard to say for sure, as the announcement also included the quote “…and of water course womb rume […]

Jeff Mangum has played for the Occupy Wall Street movement many times; his original return to performing was a spontaneous performance in New York City. He lives in the city now, after all. Guy Picciotto has been more of a producer than a band member since Fugazi‘s hiatus. However, the two independent legends joined together […]

WATCH: Of Montreal – “Little Bird” (Acoustic Beach Boys Cover)

Of Montreal consists primarily of indie rocker Kevin Barnes. He posted on Youtube earlier today a video of him covering the Beach Boys by himself, and it’s a really interesting performance. I say “interesting” because fans of the Beach Boys and Of Montreal will probably feel strange about by its simplicity, but will still love […]
