Of Montreal / Casiokids
Expecting To Fly + London Zoo
We present you with one of the most attractive releases for the imminent Record Store Day, to be celebrated on 16th April in the U.S. (although in other parts of the world, similar initiatives are starting to pop up). It’s a split 7” by Of Montreal and the Norwegian Casiokids. On one side, the boys from Athens surprise us with a cover version of “Expecting To Fly”, from the days when Neil Young was in Buffalo Springfield, a delicate piece on which the Bowie-esque voice of Kevin Barnes is accompanied by just a piano. On the other side, the Norwegians give us “London Zoo”, another bright and exciting piece of electro-pop. You can find both tracks here.
