Happy Friday! of Montreal have a brand new video for the Daughter of Cloud track "Sails Hermaphroditic," featuring The Sleep Rats battling The Preppy Scuz in a game of zombie football. Through out the game people occasionally lose themselves in a psychedelic sexual reverie. Eventually the battle is broken up by a gonzo performance by the legendary Newcastle hair-metal band Moat-er-Wilde.
Be warned: This video might not be suitable for all work environments. It features brief violence and (mild) nudity.
Deerhoof recently got the chance to record a song for "Masters From Their Day," an on-going series that documents artists recording a song in just one day. In this episode, Deerhoof work with Chris Shaw, who has worked on tons of amazing records (Weezer's Blue Album, Public Enemy's It Takes a Nation of Millions To Hold Us Back, and more), on the song "Sexy, But Sparkly," which is featured on the vinyl version of our latest sampler, Hey Girl, Hey, available RIGHT HERE.
of Montreal's new outtakes/rarities album, Daughter of Cloud, is officially out now! This album features 17 tracks: 10 of them are previously unreleased, while the other 7 were originally issued on rare, out-of-print, or limited edition CDs and 7"s. These recordings range from the Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? era to the present.
Rather than arranging the songs chronologically, of Montreal mastermind Kevin Barnes, carefully sequenced the tracks to give the listener the same feeling they would receive upon hearing a brand new album.
Daughter of Cloud is available on beautiful black 2xLP, CD, and purple cassette. Pick one up at your favorite local record shop, or directly through us RIGHT HERE.
