E6 flowchart

In the early aughts, the music released by Of Montreal glowed like bright pink fluorescent paint under a blacklight.  Their wildly melodic music, with its dense arrangements and anti-personal lyrics, contrasted with the cathartic, personal albums released during indie rock’s singer/songwriter boom years.  Likewise, their concerts seemed like be-ins for our post-millennial times.  The band’s sprawling lineup plays an eclectic style of music, drawing from pre-rock pop formats and more au courant styles, and the members frequently dress in unusual costumes and incorporate sketches and dance numbers into their sets.
