It's worth reading his statement (EDIT: Looks like it was the following year, after he contributed to another ad). I think he sent it to Stereogum--the link is dead, but there's an extended excerpt on avclub that's pretty choice.

https://news.avclub.com/of-montreal...ible-1798212793

"In the art industry, it's extremely difficult to be successful without turning yourself into a cartoon. Even Hunter S. Thompson knew this. God knows Duchamp and Warhol knew it. Some artists are turned into cartoons and others do it themselves. I prefer to do it myself, at least then I can control how my cock is photographed."

"The worst kind of person is the one who sucks the dick of the man during the daytime and then draws pictures of themselves slitting his throat at night. Jesus Christ, make up your mind!"

I've never listened to 1975 before apart from hearing random songs here and there but I gave there new one a listen and it's really good. That one-two punch of Don't Worry and Guys at the end was really emotional, thinking about my relationship and friends. Holding in some manly tears for sure.

To each their own, but I don't even know where you would've gotten this. NPR:The Band (especially around this time) would have been Animal Collective or Dirty Projectors, or more likely the third album by Fela Kuti's former kalimba player.

I thought he'd express regret at his 2007 statement of how "The thing is, I like capitalism. I think it's an interesting challenge. It's a system that rewards the imaginative and ambitious adults and punishes the lazy adults."
But nope. Kind of a dick, huh.

Huh? I mean the capitalism comment is obviously pretty bad, but he doesnít like double down on it or say other stuff like that in the Relix article? I thought he came across as pretty reasonable and self aware, more than I would have expected tbh

Saw Reb Fountain on Saturday night, and she was great. In a similar genre to Aldous Harding or Nadia Reid (in fact, here's a thing she did with Nadia for our national radio station where they each cover a song by the other), but she strays a little closer to alt-country, sometimes sounding almost like Patti Smith. Anyway, she definitely deserves your attention.

wow, this is amazing, thanks. 30 seconds into the first track I was like 'hm I'm not sure if I would like this if I didn't know the original song' but it quickly turned amazing. I've wondered how they would do some of these tracks live considering the complexity, and these live arrangements are just so well done even with the level of improvisation they are including. To have these totally different live mixes at this stage in their career shows a really mature sense of musicality. I cannot WAIT for album 2, I still can't believe they are not more popular from the ST.

I stan high pitched 'no' synyth player.


edit: whoa it is so cool to see the comments on that youtube video, people really seem to have connected to this. I hope it leads to big things.

Yeah right? There's a lot of stuff in their songs that I assumed was sequenced because it's quite intricate and doesn't repeat much, but nope - just extremely well-practiced, meticulously composed weird beautiful music.

The biggest problem with Reflektor is that all the songs go on for way too long. If you edited the album down to a tight 40, it might be good.

I was excited for Everything Now because it was a single LP, and I thought "thank God, they're cutting back again."

That didn't last.

I wasn't crazy about parts of Everything Now at first, but even the worst songs on the album have grown on me over the last few years. So, I think that Reflektor and Everything now are still solid albums, but I hope they return to form with their new album that I expect to be out within the year. They spent the last two albums chasing the high of Sprawl II and trying to make dance records.

The consumerism commentary on EN just seems so... Late to the game. It's been done a million times over by now. Still there were some good songs and I heard the love show was killer if not extremely poorly attended which is a shame.

I think you can take the second half of reflektor and merge it with half of EN and have a great album.

Their appearance on Conan back for that album was pretty darn good. I am of the mindset that Neon Bible was their last solid start-to-finish album. Everything after thatís just a couple handpicked songs.
