Boomkat Product Review:
This EP serves as a companion release to Of Montreal's recent "Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?" album, which saw Kevin Barnes on the receiving end of some serious praise from all quarters. The five tracks here are all exclusive to this release which was initially available as a tour CD - the first very much in keeping with Hissing Fauna's skewed, technicolour pop strategies. 'Derailments In A Place Of Our Own' comes as something of a surprise, evoking Syd Barrett's raw solo outpourings - its simple combination of Barnes' voice and deadpan acoustic powerchords make for an incredibly emotive combination. This uncharacteristically low-key sound is sustained for 'Miss Blonde, Your Papa Is Failing' a simple, Beatles-styled ballad that makes way for the epic 'No Conclusion' whose twists and digressions make its nine-and-a-half-minutes seem short. Kevin Barnes is certainly on top of his game at the moment, and this extremely desirable package is testament to that - it's certainly a far cry from the ramshackle outtakes collection you might have expected. Highly recommended.
