New Of Montreal: Feminine Effects

I didn't know Of Montreal had this in them, but I'm surely glad they did.

"Feminine Effects," which premiered on Minnesotan public radio earlier this month, is everything your typical Of Montreal song isn't: subdued, elegiac, purely piano-based and absolutely devastating. There are no zany synths or references to obscure mythologies. "Feminine Effects" is a ballad, and a damn good one. Kevin Barnes laments his past nïaveté and subsequent jadedness to heartbreaking effect.
