of Montreal: “An Eluardian Instance”

ofmontrealRadiohead revolutionized the way that music is sold when they released In Rainbows as a pay-what-you-want-for-it digital download in the fall of 2007—months before the album was released in traditional CD form. In response to this popular and easy-to-digest but depersonalized purchasing model, of Montreal sought to shift the music packaging paradigm away from the electronic and into the tangible by offering the album artwork as a collection in seven separate formats when it was released in October of last year. I’m not sure what this statement says for their performances, but you can see for yourself a month from now (on July 24) at Oakland’s Fox Theater—and trick yourself out in all types of attire. Like this lantern. And if you haven’t heard this yet, open your ears for a taste of glittering techno-pop:

    I think it says that they are true artists on ALL levels. I mean they are interested in creating music AND art.
