"Hydra Fancies"

Kevin Barnes has been slowly morphing Of Montreal into a straight-up white-soul band for a few years now, and with 'Hydra Fancies' — from the psychedelic Georgia band's upcoming False Priest — he's finally realized his vision. This funky, tight-harmony jam could be a lost Dirty Mind-era Prince cut — at least until Barnes tells his beloved, 'Touching you is like standing on a dragon's tongue.' Hot bonus: a vintage-synth freak-out at the end.
