According to the latest bio, Of Montreal's Kevin Barnes has been through some difficult personal times ' and if one's inclined to focus on the lyrics herein, one might spot such despondency ' but listening to the music he's producing, it sure sounds like skies are sunny. It's in his musical DNA. Having grown past the incestuous ranks of the Athens, Ga., Elephant 6 musical scene and introducing a white man's funk (references to Sly Stone are honorable but not to be delivered on, please) to the eclectic, psychedelic sandbox, with Hissing Fauna Barnes seems more determined than ever to move in next door to the Flaming Lips and feast on their multimedia ambitions. The epic 12-minute 'The Past Is a Grotesque Animalâ?� is the album's best distillation of influences, curtailing the floofy ornamental ways of 'A Sentence of Sorts in Kongsvingerâ?� (who writes titles like this?) with a propelling rhythm that justifies its overwhelming length.
