New of Montreal single up!



From Pitchfork:

Premiere: Of Montreal: "Id Engager" [MP3/Stream]

Funky, hypnotic, and gloriously weird, "Id Engager" is both the closing track on Of Montreal's Skeletal Lamping and its lead single. The key thread through it all is "color"-- cover art (both the album and single are below, album on left), the decorative costumes, and most of all in the slinky, strobing indie-pop disco of the tune itself. Kevin Barnes shrieks and howls when the spirit moves him, and then turns on the purr for the whisper-soft "Ooo...Ah..." background vocals, while the bubbling music has the lush feel of a Tom Moulton mix. A surprising first single, perhaps, and not easy to imagine as the album closer (though there is a note of finality at the end), but "Id Engager" is both satisfying on its own and an intriguing teaser as to where Of Montreal will go next.


Download at the source too!
