By Josiah HughesProlific Athens, GA pop weirdos Of Montreal are currently hard at work on their Song Dynasties documentary, but they've also been busy in the studio. Now, they've completed work on their 12th full-length album.
According to a post on Kevin Barnes' Tumblr page, the new album is called Lousy with Sylvianbriar. He also describes it as "pretty different from Paralytic Stalks."
Check out his full statement below:
I'm so happy to say that we've just finished a new album! It is titled "lousy with sylvianbriar". We recorded it in my home studio on a 24 track tape machine. It is pretty different from Paralytic Stalks. Definitely more G Parsons than K Penderecki this time around. I wrote most of the songs while on a self imposed isolation experiment in San Francisco earlier this year, and we recorded it, over a two week period, about a month after i got back to Athens. I was influenced by the poetry of Sylvia Plath (hence the reference in the title), plus artists like the Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Flying Burrito Brothers…I can't wait to share it with you! It won't come out until the Fall though so I just have to be patient.
Stay tuned for more info on a release date as it becomes available.
