Despite the one-two punch of Paralytic Stalks and Daughter of Cloud in 2012, Of Montreal are back with a new record, lousy with sylvanbriarfor 2013. Yes, it’s the band’s lowercase record – its first single, “fugitive air,” is Shift-averse too. It’s a pretty, bubbly, 70s-style psychedelic nostalgia trip, recorded on a 24-track tape machine in the band’s home studio. In a press release, Kevin Barnes announced he wanted this record to be more fast-paced and lyric-driven, and “fugitive air” is living proof: is it just us, or is that opening lyric “it makes me feel like a real man to put hegemony over my business”? We’re excited to see what other hilarious turns of phrase Barnes serves up on this one – it’s out October 8, and you’ll have no trouble putting “fugitive air” on repeat in the meantime.

Of Montreal – lousy with sylvianbriar:

01 fugitive air
02 obsidian currents
03 belle glade missionairies
04 sirens of your toxic spirit
05 colossus
06 triumph of disintegration
07 amphibian days
08 she ain’t speakin’ now
09 hegira émigré
10 raindrop in my skull
11 imbecile rages
