This is the title track off Of Montreal’s new 7″, Micro-University. It’s better than their two new songs from the tour EP, but still quite weird. Thankfully weird works for Of Montreal.
MP3: Of Montreal – Micro-University
Whereas the other track on the 7″, “Christian Son,” is an acoustic tune that wouldn’t be out of place on Aldhils or Satanic Panic, it’s tough for me to place “Micro-University.” Maybe this is an indicator as to how the next album might sound? All I know is it’s partially a departure, and partially a return to form. It’s refreshing to know that Kevin’s not taking the band in a weird direction, like the tour EP might indicate. He is continuing to step out from his comfort zone, though. Luckily for us, he hasn’t lost his touch yet.
