New Live of Montreal Video – “For Our Elegant Caste”

Even though it didn’t make it onto Out’s list, of Montreal’s most recent work Skeletal Lamping is a fun, ambitious, polysexual, Ziggy Stardusted record. In this live footage, of Montreal tackles one of Skeletal’s tracks “For Our Elegant Caste” while it was still titled “Softcore,” as Kevin Barnes calls the “environmental” song in the clip. We’re also treated to a creepy guy in a silver mask getting his “id” engaged by a guy in a tiger mask. Which is something you don’t get on the album proper. All the action was captured in Fall 2007 at the Avalon in Los Angeles.

Skeletal Lamping is out 10/7 via Polyvinyl. It’s available for preorder and paradigm shifting. Also, for folks in the Seattle area, there’s going to be a “of Montreal’s Skeletal Lamping Laser Listening Session” 9/12 @ 9:15 (sharp) at the Pacific Science Center in the Seattle Laser Dome.
