false priest (2010/POLYVINYL)

paralytic stalks (2012/POLYVINYL)
POST/INDIE-ROCK. "paralytic stalks" musical and lyrical directions are infinitely more personal than anything frontman Kevin Barnes has written before. "paralytic stalks" at times resembles modern classical with its intricate compositions, while at others echoes of neo-prog, pseudo-country, and '60s pop. It's an impressive album, jumping from unplugged confessional to atonal weirdness and then back to sunny '60s-style psych-pop, all while still taking aim at fake idols. Thick 1800gr, colored vinyl comes with pull-out poster and includes a digital download card.
satanic panic in the attic (2004/POLYVINYL)
POST/INDIE-ROCK. The most critically acclaimed OF MONTREAL record, "satanic panic in the attic" is the 1st in the bands career to blend drum samples and acoustic instruments through these brilliantly written songs.

An essential album for any OF MONTREAL fan.
skeletal lamping (2008/POLYVINYL)
POST/INDIE-ROCK. OF MONTREAL, aka Kevin Barnes, has been perverting US indie for more than 10 years, with his mix of electronic psychedelia and 1980s funk-pop paving the way for the likes of MGMT. On his 9th album, he has shifted the focus back to his wicked side. It's a complicated and dense thrill ride packed with slinky grooves that demand a physical response. Its unpredictable, completely unique, and epic. And while OF MONTREAL's albums have always been epic, "Skeletal lamping" is an unprecedented achievement that will be talked about for years. The vinyl comes on 180gr in a deluxe double gatefold-jacket and includes a digital download card.
POST/INDIE-ROCK. These songs were written in Sunlandia, that’s where most of the folk songs are written now a days, and they were recorded up there, as well as in L.A.. There are many noisy moments that represent my attempt to communicate, in a sub human language, all that cannot be expressed with our earth tongue and all manners of mouth mechanisms. This MLP is a freak-out record, have you ever seen anyone dancing to folk music? Vinyl comes on 180gr and includes a digital download card.
innominate (2004/GOLDEN BROWN)
POST-HARDCORE. The highly anticipated 2nd full-length from OFF MINOR is a brilliant technical screamo album filled with great melodies and power. The songs are a bit longer with interesting song structures - 8 songs at all; and of course OFF MINOR is a spin off of SAETIA, though maybe that is irrelevant at this point.
some blood (2008/NARSHARDA)
POST-HARDCORE. "some blood" is the 3rd full-length from this influential hardcore band. OFF MINOR have now been around for almost 8 years and this record continues to build and expand their unique mix of post-hardcore, screamo, jazzy and emotional punk along with the intense, beautiful lyrics they are known for.
