Of Montreal's latest release, thecontrollersphere, comprises songs that were written and recorded during the sessions for last year's False Priest, but this music has an entirely different tone. Unlike that record, which pushed songwriter Kevin Barnes further into funk territory than ever before, these tracks are darker, edgier and noisier. The set is more like an extended psychedelic nightmare, beginning with the loud, violent "Black Lion Massacre" and peaking with the knotty, string-augmented "Holiday Call." The EP will hit stores on April 26th, but you can listen to it in full now.
