Like A Promethean Curse

Photo courtesy of Pina CourierI've already posted about Of Montreal's new record due tomorrow Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? so this is kind of a reminder to buy it. I can't help but post about the latest video of Heimdalsgate Like A Promethean Curse from the record. If I'm correct this is their first non animated video clip. These guys get quirkier by the day with their costumes. Hemidalsgate... talks about Kevin Barne's personal struggle through depression and drugs with the help from his wife Nina Twin. (I'm in a crisis / I need help / Come on mood shift / shift back to good again / Come on be a friend / Nina Twin is trying to help, and I really hope that she succeeds.) The track itself proves to be upbeat with elements of electronics which has some how found its way to be the new sound. Of Montreal will also be releasing a new EP "Icons, Abstract Thee" which will only be available through their record label Polyvinyl and they're also touring extensively in the US at the moment.
