Hailing from Athens, Of Montreal have carved their own niche in the indie-pop world, establishing themselves as a uniquely twisted band that thrills fans with compelling live performances, delights critics with their constant innovations and refinements, and continually showcases their musical evolution that culls together influences as varied as Brian Eno, Television, Prince, and The Shins. With The Sunlandic Twins, they have achieved their masterpiece, making it their most cohesive and adventurous record to date. As Of Montreal mastermind Kevin Barnes puts it: The album plays out like an electro pop opera, although no lorgnette is required. Beginning buoyant and opalescent, traversing a labyrinthine Neptune and climaxing in blackout darkness one only discovers in warm solitude. LP in double gatefold jacket, includes bonus 12" with etched B-side.
