Last Thursday Of Montreal vocalist/mastermind Kevin Barnes spoke with Rolling Stone's Rock and Roll Daily blog about what will come after Skeletal Lamping. Barnes told RS that he has something a little noisier in mind:

"It's sort of abstract in my mind, but right now what I'll create will be mesmeric and kind of physical music. Try to create music that you have a physical reaction to. Try to touch you on a level that's not strictly intellectual but more physical, and that's not to say you'll dance to it."

In the meantime a comprehensive Of Montreal DVD is in the works. The group filmed a show in Los Angeles during last year's Hissing Fauna tour as well as a show at the Tabernacle in Atlanta last month. The plan is to release a DVD that compiles the group's videos, the two live performances and some documentary material as well.

This week Of Montreal plays the Late Show with David Letterman on Thurs., Dec. 18th. After that the An Eluardian Instance EP featuring remixes from Grammy-nominated producer Jon Brion (Spoon, Kanye West, Elliott Smith, Fiona Apple) is due digitally Jan. 6th/Jan. 27th on CD and LP via Polyvinyl Records.
