Of Montreal have promised no wave, funk, psychedelic, and the kitchen sink on their next album, False Priest, due sometime next spring. Ostensibly, this will be a fitting foil to their dreary couplets and twee-on-speed upbeat melodies (as the previous 13 albums attest); after all, expect nothing less from the Elephant 6 collective who covered Yoko Ono’s “I Felt Like Smashing My Head Through a Clear Glass Window” and made it feel like a kiss. With trip-bot space oddity Janelle Monae.
