Stream Of Montreal’s Psychotropic Sweet-Talker ‘Belle Glade Missionaries’

Kevin Barnes' full-length ode to '60s folk drops this October

Of Montreal have already set free two tunes from their upcoming 12th album, and now the Georgian psych-peddlers have unleashed a third. Following “She Ain’t Speaking Now” and “Fugitive Air,” the freshly liberated “Belle Glade Missionaries” brings with it six minutes of spiraling guitar, swooning harmonies, and loopy wordplay. Band ringleader Kevin Barnes sings about children getting blown up in schools and a character who posts naked GIFs of epileptic fits, all before reminding us that “there’s a value in things unpleasant.”

“Belle Glade Missionaries” appears on Of Montreal’s lousy with sylvianbriar, the forthcoming follow-up to 2012’s Paralytic Stalks. The new full-length (one of SPIN’s 50 Fall Albums You Gotta Hear) arrives on October 8 via Polyvinyl in CD, vinyl, cassette, and digital formats. Until then, scroll down to stream the Elephant 6 alums’ latest track and hear Barnes unspool rich, delirious tongue-twisters such as: “From your first psychotic episode, to your drug-induced schizophrenia, it’s your dysphoric mania that makes you so likable.”
