Music Video: of Montreal, An Eluardian Instance

Filed under: Download, Indie Pop, Music Video — Tags: , — Greg @ 10:40 pm


Song: An Eluardian Instance
Artist: of Montreal
Album: Skeletal Lamping
Label: Polyvinyl Records
Notes: 3rd single from LP
Analysis: I can’t say that I enjoy a lot of of Montreal’s music personally, but there are a few standout tracks in my mind, and this is one of their better ones. It’s a light, summery synth/keyboard track, emphasized by triumphant horns and a catchy pop melody. The video has some interesting sped-up visuals, consisting of some crazy cgi kites and a bizarre stop motion sheep, among other wacky sights. ‘An Eluardian Instance’ is one of the better tunes on Skeletal Lamping, and it works well in the video format.
