Of Montreal Satanic Panic In The Attic on LP
Hailing from Athens, GA, Of Montreal have carved their own niche - establishing themselves as a band that thrills fans with compelling live performances, delights critics with their constant innovations, and continually showcases their musical evolution by drawing from a different set of influences for each album. Primary songwriter Kevin Barnes pours emotion - heartbreak, frustration, elation, whimsy - into lyrics that shift from adopted personas to invented alter egos to unobstructed views directly into his psyche. 2004's Satanic Panic in the Attic served as the group's breakthrough sixth full-length release and first for Polyvinyl. Fan favorites like "Disconnect the Dots," "Lysergic Bliss," and "Chrissy Kiss the Corpse," find Of Montreal's implementing such disparate influences as 1970's Afro beat and 80's new wave with aplomb.
