Amoeba Review

10/07/2013

A truly odd record from a band that has only ever made odd records. While Lousy With Sylvianbriar is a dramatic return to the band's Elephant 6 "roots," abound with lush family-style psych-rock, it is also one of the most lyrically dense records the band has ever made. The shout-along anthemicism of their more recent electronic work is gone in favor of hints of Elf Power and the Olivia Tremor Control. Kevin Barnes packs every song with deep listening lyrics ranging from articulate and snide criticism of other artists' practices to dropping knowing Henry Miller references to psychedelic retro-narratives that might appear in a Bowie or Beatles song. of Montreal has been at it for almost 20 years now and one of the reasons they've lasted that long is because they're good at what they do and they're catchy about doing it, in spite of, or depending on how you look at it, owing to their far reaching ambitions. This record should please both old and new fans of oM.
