New Of Montreal Video- “L’age D’or”

For you non-french speakers, the title of Of Montreal’s new song, “L’age d’or,” translates to “The Golden Age.” Though it’s not clear what the first single off the band’s thecontrollersphere EP is referring to, if it’s the amount of glitter used in their videos and live shows, then that sounds about right.
Their new video, featuring a camera shy Kevin Barnes and several face-painted females, is made up of fast moving, spliced images shot in day-glo color. At times the images are so bright it almost make your eyes hurt, but in typical Of Montreal fashion, the video is so mysterious and visually dynamic that it’s too hard to look away.

Barnes will be DJing at Brooklyn Bowl next month on August 6th under the pseudo-name DJ List Christee.
