Of Montreal is many things. Of Montreal is one of the stalwarts of the Athens, Georgia pop scene. Of Montreal is the recording and performing project of one Kevin Barnes. And Of Montreal is one of the many bands still in operation with a tie to the loose Elephant Six collective of the late '90s, a group of like-minded bands centered around that incredibly fertile Southern college town (others included Neutral Milk Hotel, Apples In Stereo and Olivia Tremor Cotrol). Of Montreal is not, however, predictable. And therein lies the appeal of a band that, over its past two albums, has exploded from cult appeal to international popularity.
