of Montreal - Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse

Another amazing band out of Athens, GA. Kevin Barnes brought the band together in 1997. They've become the darlings of indie rock over the past decade. After the commercial use of their music for an Outback Steakhouse Commercial and on the Showtime series, Weeds, of Montreal's audience grew. Their 2007 release Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?, is perhaps their best. On this album Barnes holds true to his lo-fi roots and adds more abstract soundskapes.
