Hissing Fauna… is the first album I’ve heard by Of Montreal.
This surprised me at first because of the free flowing vocals and melodies, but took me a while to get into it.
Kevin Barnes doesn’t seem to have musical barriers, he easily go crazy into a frentic synthpop tantrum embracing almost every imaginable rythm combination.
My favourite tracks are Cato as a Pun, Gronlandic Edit andFaberge falls For Shuggie.

Not the hype nor the popular success of MGMT made me like Oracular Spectacular.

Good music, though.

They’re a cool gathering of several psychedelic elements, from retro effects to modern vocalizations, BMSR is the perfect soundtrack for a personal trip (:

Samara Lubelski - Parallel Suns

Samara Lubelski is a name you can have heard before. She has participated on several bands and projects.

Parallel Suns is a very good psychedelic folk album. There’s a 60’s aura around the album, so you may feel like listening to classic stuff.
I like her delicate voice and the guitars and organs arrangements. I only don’t like much the drums. But it’s almost irrelevant.
