Artist: of Montreal
The idea behind of Montreal’s new EP is a simple one: chaos. The album begins and ends with a chaotic freakout somewhat reminiscent of “The Past is a Grotesque Animal” from 2007’s Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? This collection of outtakes sounds as if the last three release were thrown into a blender, and predictably some of it works and some of it doesn’t. The band, however, keeps finding ways to increase its freakier qualities and that’s not necessarily a complaint.
