Pullin’ ‘Tubes: Indie-Shakedown

Move over Wilco and My Morning Jacket, jam fans may have a new indie band to embrace – Of Montreal. While they may be best know for an insane arty stage show, nonsensical song names and the peddlers of the Bloomin’ Onion – they are also no stranger to the art of the cover song (check out this great list).

At their recent stop at Langerado the indie-popsters dug into their bag of tricks and played to their audience by offering up a pretty stellar take on the Grateful Dead’s “Shakedown Street”….

If I was ever to classify something as “post-jam” this might be example number one on my list, but then again I would probably just say it was a smart move on their part to gain some new fans who most likely had never heard of them.

    Holy shit. I had no idea about their cover repertoire. Cover Wars – YOINK!

    Their most recent album, “Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?” is an amazing disc.

    Yeah that new is quite good. Great psychedelic indie-pop

    Their live show is definitely pretty impressive, too. They bring in a little more of the scary, dark synthy stuff with the straight-ahead indie pop. Makes for an interesting mix.
