Of Montreal

"I have a feeling you wanna be the female Henry Miller," Kevin Barnes wryly chants on "Belle Glade Missionaries," from Of Montreal's latest release, Lousy with Sylvianbriar. Belle Glade refers to the notoriously crime-ridden Florida city with an extraordinarily high rate of gun violence, and the band foments the spirit of rebellion, channeling Bob Dylan and adding their own irreverent twist. This is their most self-consciously literary album, replete with cagey poetry, enhanced by a 24-track tape recording that conjures the thorny, lo-fi, twee intellectualism of '60s counterculture, taking select moments away from the nasal to return to that lilting pastoral Americana.
