Of Montreal At Lupo’s

B. P. The show on Tuesday coincides with the release of the new EP thecontrollersphere which was recorded along with False Priest in 2010. So the EP is new, but the music is not really really new, although Rolling Stone thinks it sounds pretty different.

Unlike that record, which pushed songwriter Kevin Barnes further into funk territory than ever before, these tracks are darker, edgier and noisier.

Go here to listen to thecontrollersphere. ‘Black Lion Massacre’ is a little challenging, but the other cuts are pretty appealing. Also, the band promises “If you bought a copy of David’s new book, What’s Weird? bring it with you to the shows! David will be signing books at the merch table for a few minutes before every show so get there early! Who knows, maybe he’ll even hook you up with a drawing!” It looks like these people know how to put on a show. Opening for of Montreal is the chime-y sunshine pop of Painted Palms* (check out ‘Falling Asleep’, real nice.)

$23 day of show, doors 8pm, show 9pm, Tuesday, April 26, Lupo’s, 79 Washington Street

*Somebody sign this band. Really pleasing sound with at least one catchy single ready to launch. Fun show.
