Of Montreal – We Were Born The Mutants Again With Leafling

‘Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer’ might just be one of the great albums of our time. With danceable, catchy, funky tunes, but telling dark and personal tales of inner turmoil, it’s a split personality of a record straight from Kevin Barnes’ brain. At the Botanique in Brussels on Friday night, however, all Of Montreal wanted to do was have a good time. With only forty minutes allotted time they squeezed in theatrics galore and as much of the ideas-explosion that is ‘Hissing Fauna…’ as could be expected. ‘She’s A Rejector’ opened the show, with an actor on stage in suit and tie staying perfectly still, only to explode in a mimed fit of rage during the chorus. ‘Suffer For Fashion’ then got the crowd moving, and the panto moved into full swing, though the excellent ‘Gronlandic Edit’ and ‘Bunny Ain’t No Rider’ as the band popped balloons of glitter over the crowd. After they finished on the day-glo pop song ‘Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse’ to make way for We Are Scientists, you got the feeling the real party was just starting, not too far away. TK
