"Skeletal Lamping is the title of the ninth studio album by Athens, Georgia-based band of Montreal. Kevin Barnes said about the title: "This record is my attempt to bring all of my puzzling, contradicting, disturbing, humorous...fantasies, ruminations and observations to the surface, so that I can better dissect and understand their reason for being in my head. Hence the title, Skeletal Lamping. Lamping is the name of a hunting technique where hunters go into the forest at night, flood an area in light, then shoot or capture the animals as they panic and run from their hiding places."-Wikipedia

"Hissing Fauna, Are You the Destroyer?, catapulted the band to the upper echelon of indie stardom. The album landed on over 30 major year-end lists including Paste, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, and Associated Press, and sold over 100,000 copies. A year and a half later, of Montreal are back with Skeletal Lamping, a complicated and dense thrill ride packed with slinky grooves that demand a physical response. It's 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.
