1299. Of Montreal - Icons, Abstract Thee
Fuck I love this EP. I love Of Montreal. I have ellen mainly to thank for that, and James too. What I love about the band is how prolific Barnes is - there's something about artists that just write so much music that instantly makes me like them, like Prince. This EP is as neurotic and chaotic as other OM releases but it's much more stripped down. Easily, the highlight of the disc to me is "No Conclusion" - a sentiment I feel more and more often. Also, any artist who writes a lyric like "Cock shocker blues" is genius in my book.
