From Oscilloscope:

THE PAST IS A GROTESQUE ANIMAL is a personal, accessible look at an artist - Kevin Barnes, frontman of the endlessly versatile indie pop band of Montreal – whose pursuit to make transcendent music at all costs drives him to value art over human relationships. As he struggles with all of those around him, family and bandmates alike, he’s forced to reconsider the future of the band, begging the question – is this really worth it?

  • Extended footage and deleted scenes
  • Live performances at The Tabernacle, Avalon, & other venues
  • Frog Mountain -- intimate home video from the early years
  • "Coquet Coquette" music video
  • "Empyrean Abattoir" -- unreleased track by Kevin Barnes

In this age of carefully constructed media personalities, [TPIAGA] displays a brand of honesty that is exceptionally rare. The definitive chronicle of Of Montreal...absolutely essential viewing for fans.
