Georgia-based glam-pop quintet Of Montreal is set to release its new album, False Priest, on September 14, and Joyful Noise is offering the group’s tenth studio album on a re-trending format: casette tape.
Yes, the band’s latest style-slick epic can be heard with a glorious low-fi hiss — until your tape player eats it.
False Priest continues Of Montreal’s dalliance with non-traditional formats, as employed on 2008 album Skeletal Lamping. Polyvinyl will release the LP and CD editions.
Singer Kevin Barnes, with brother David and wife Nina, created the artwork for a 12-panel booklet for the eye-catching red cassette, of which only 500 copies will be available.
