Of Montreal – Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games

It is probably instructive that the only time Of Montreal have appeared on this blog in over 5 years has been when the post was written by someone else (a review of a gig in Brussels if you don’t mind). There is just something about this group that keeps me from their door when the most logical action would to be drop in for multiple brews. Anyway, it is the way it is and I can only hold my hands up when songs like this appear from nowhere on my daily rounds and I’m forced to reassess. Wraith Pinned To The Mist And Other Games is from 2005’s The Sunlandic Twins and is characterised by its bubbling bass line, machine orchestrated beats and Kevin Barnes brilliantly imaginative lyrics. File it under Brakes’ All Nite Disco Party or even the Phoenix Foundation’s Buffalo, an about turn if ever there was one. KD

    I think they’ve taken a turn for the worse over the last three albums, but I’m glad you’ve come around for some good Of Montreal. I really love a lot of their stuff.
