Of Montreal (cont.)

SO, Of Montreal, right? Pretty wild stuff. Oh, and James Husband. Just a standard amateur rock sound; highly forgettable.

But on to the good stuff, yeah? Alec covered the show well, but I don't think the strangeness of the performance can be done justice through words alone. The psychedelic air that emanates from their recordings is personified in concert, and the bizarre yet tangible figures that appear on stage magnify the impact of the music. Alec seemed to imply that the girliness of Kevin's was a bad thing, but I think it worked well in the sort of repackaging of their songs that their live performances provide; it was simply a different, more energetic and raw, less relaxed version of Of Montreal.

Not trying to sit on your candle or anything, Alec, but that's my take on it.
