Don't try to pin a tidy label on Of Montreal, baby.
In fact, when we here at Crossfade chatted with crew leader Kevin Barnes as he prepared to unveil the band's latest album, Lousy With Sylvianbriar, the puckish indie type toyed with us, insisting he "might call [it] Americana maybe" or possibly "kind of like outlaw country," though it's "not really country either" and definitely "not anything like the Eagles."
Now, we'll simplify things and say: Sylvianbriar is maybe Of Montreal's most straight-ahead rock 'n' roll record ever. And if you wanna rock out like "la, la, la, ooh-ah-ah" ...
Just check the cut to win two free tickets for Kevin and crew at Grand Central Miami.
