Of Montreal Preps Acoustic EP, Tour
- Words: Fred Miketa
Of Montreal is more than a band bent on writing killer pop tunes and indecent exposure. Since releasing Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? in June, the band has been hard at work prepping its acoustic EP, Sony Connect Set, its first for download site Sony Connect. Released October 2, the digital-only EP features covers of Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” and Love Is All’s "Make Out, Fall Out, Make Up," in addition to Hissing Fauna’s breakthrough single, "Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse."
Also slated for release is a reissue of the band’s Track and Field compilation, If He Is Protecting Our Nation Then Who Will Protect Big Oil, Our Children?, due out October 30. But why stop there? Polyvinyl’s glam-pop troupe is also hitting the road for two months of eagerly anticipated live dates.
Sony Connect Set is out now on Sony Connect/Polyvinyl.
If He Is Protecting Our Nation Then Who Will Protect Big Oil, Our Children? is out October 30 on Polyvinyl.
