    1. Gallery : of Montreal And Yip Deceiver At Neumos 3/27

      Posted on in Gallery

      Of Montreal: a Georgian psychedelic pop/rock band with songs you could just lose yourself for a few hours with. This band has its hands in just about everything. Known for being part of the elephant six collective, a group of bands like The Olivia Tremor Control and Neutral Milk Hotel, which has seen success in the indie rock world for quite some time. Going on 20 years of age, the band has had numerous records from the late 90s, but saw their biggest albums in the mid 2000s with Sunlandic Twins and Hissing Fauna Are You The Destroyer. Taking influences from 60s rock with heavy guitar and melodic synth, Of Montreal has to be one of the most creative and inventive bands my ears have had the chance to listen to.
