Back in January, we debuted “It All Began With A Burst,” an early, exceedingly effervescent listen from current Of Montreal touring member Kishi Bashi’s debut full-length, 151a. That record is due out tomorrow via Joyful Noise and below, you can take a look at the Brett Vaughn-directed clip for “Bright Whites” featuring several members Of Montreal (among others!) acting out literal interpretations of 56 classic idioms while exotic birds attempt to escape a carnival. Whimsy abounds! And if you’re keen on idioms, KishiBashi.com is currently hosting a fill-in-the-blank contest for a $100 gift certificate to the Joyful Noise online store — all you’ve got to do is spot them and work them into the phrase they’ve laid out for you.
