Song of the Day: Of Montreal Covers Neil Young's "Harvest Moon"

Song of the Day: Of Montreal Covers Neil Young's "Harvest Moon"

At first glance, Of Montreal doesn't look like the kind of band that would cover Neil Young. (As Exhibit A, I present the above photo of Kevin Barnes and company performing at the 2007 Pitchfork Music Festival.) But I've just found a recording of the psychedelic pop-rockers performing "Harvest Moon," off of Young's album of the same name, and it's really quite lovely.

Of Montreal's Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer? remains one of my favorite albums of 2007, and though the music is a bit wacky on the surface, it's pretty dark when you really get down to it. (This one, for instance, is built around the plea, "I'm in a crisis / I need help / Come on mood shift, shift back to good again.") Here, Barnes' delicate, childlike vocals add an emotional gravitas to Young's classic. To listen head over to Aquarium Drunkard and then let me know what you think.

I love Of Montreal! It's rare for me to feel that every song by a band is good. Thanks for giving them some recognition!

And isn't it "I'm in a crisis / I need a helping hand ?" I'm probably wrong, but yeah..

I LOVE OF MONTREAL! I thought they were lesser-known, though. Ah well, they deserve publicity.
