Of Montreal – Aldhils Arboretum

In contrast to the recent crop of bands purveying twee ’60s-style sunshine pop, the latest from Of Montreal comes as a relief. While they, too, are feeling the hippie spirit?their artwork leaves us in no doubt they believe free love and flower power are groovy, baby?they blend retro psychedelia with a healthy sense of irony: here, witty lyrics are just as important as sweet melodies and honeyed harmonies. An irreverent and enjoyably silly listen.
