[mp3] of Montreal - "Id Engager"

After loving last year’s Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? (my personal introduction to Of Montreal) I’ve wanted to post the first single from the forthcoming Skeletal Lamping for about a week now. And I’ve been sitting on it. I guess I just don’t feel the same urgency about posting this as I did last year about many of those songs. I mean, that album was special, you know? Hopefully Skeletal Lamping will be too, but I’m just not that crazy about “Id Engager”, at least not as a single. I mean, it’s good - kind of like some of those post “The Past Is A Grotesque Animal” tracks on Hissing Fauna meets “Rock The Casbah”, at least between the 4 and 23 second mark - and no doubt would be a decent deep cut. It’s just not grabbing me in the same way as “Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse” or “Suffer For Fashion”. Regardless, it’s got a nice little dance floor groove, and it’s kind of (good) kitsch, and it’s all weird, playful sexuality. So it’s prime Of Montreal, no? It's worth a post, no doubt. What do you think? Skeletal Lamping is out October 7th on Polyvinyl.
