Of Montreal

最近Of MontrealのThe Sunlandic Twinsというアルバムが私達のお気に入りだ。名前からモントリオールのバンドかと思ってたら、アメリカのGeorgia州、Athensの出身だった。ウィキペディアによると、Of Montrealって名前は、ボーカルのKevin Barnesがモントリオール出身の女性に失恋したからなんだって。音楽はアップビートなポップで、ボーカルのKevin Barnesが作ったメロディと複雑なハーモニーが素敵。Talking Heads、Scissor Sisters, Bell & Sebastianが好きな人はきっと好きだろう。1月23日にはニューアルバム、”Hissing Fauna, Are you the Destroyer?” がリリースされる。楽しみだ。2月8日にバンクーバーでライブがあるけど、水曜日なので行けそうにないな。

We really like this album, The Sunlandic Twins by Of Montreal, at the moment. I thought the band is from Montreal by the name, but they are from Athens, Georgia in US. According to Wikipedia, the band’s name created by the vocalist, Kevin Barnes from a failed romance with a woman from Montreal. Their music is upbeat pop and the melody and the complex harmony which were created by Kevin Barnes are really nice. You will like this band if you like Talking Heads, Scissor Sisters or Bell & Sebastian. Their new album, “Hissing Fauna, Are you the Destroyer?” will be released on January 23rd. I am looking forward to it. They are coming to Vancouver on February 8th to have a gig but it’s Wednesday night and I don’t think I can go.

    I am currently enjoying listening to the song called “Wraith Pinned to the Mist and Other Games”. Love it!

    ☆Mrs. K, I guess you downloaded the album (cos the song is not available at the site that I linked)!? Yeah, I love the song which I am listening to it now. There’s one song in the album I always skip which is “October is Eternal”. The second half sounds so creepy.
