Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? by of Montreal

The wildly prolific band of Montreal has assumed many forms over its twenty-plus years of existence. The one constant, other than a notoriously wild live show, is the presence of songwriter/singer/multi-instrumentalist Kevin Barnes. of Montreal’s highly regarded 2007 LP Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? finds Barnes grappling with his mental health in the face of a crumbling relationship, a first child, and a lot of time spent in the dark winter of Norway. On this episode of Critically Acclaimed, host Jake Ramirez and Community Radio Tapes co-founder/Sea Grapes fronter Luke Janke dig into the origin of the album, Barnes’ questionable alter ego, and the brilliance of the 12-minute album centerpiece.
