** ''Aldhils Arboretum'' could be seen as this as well: a collecting of stand-alone indie rock tracks after several concept albums of... [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly inexact genre]].

Of Montreal is a [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre-bending]] indie group from Athens, Georgia.[[note]]Which while technically in the DeepSouth couldn't be farther from it in reality. It's a college town.[[/note]] Formed in 1996 by Kevin Barnes as a [[IAmTheBand solo project]], it began as folksy [[BaroquePop baroque pop]] like most other Elephant 6 projects. Derek Almstead and Bryan Poole (who frequently performs under the stage name The Late B.P. Helium) soon joined; the groups' first three albums featured this lineup, and the style continued until their fifth album, ''Aldhils Arboretum''. Not only was it their first full-length record to not be a concept album, but it also introduced the dance-friendly style that set them apart from their Elephant 6 peers. This funkier sound kept on evolving on each record, and the group caught the eye of music critics with ''Sunlandic Twins'', with one song from the album even being altered and used in a commercial for Outback Steakhouse.

** Barnes even remarked in interviews that he wished to be gay out of fascination with LGBT culture, but someday realized that he just wasn't gay at all.

Of Montreal is a [[NeoclassicalPunkZydecoRockabilly genre-bending]] indie group from Athens, Georgia.[[hottip:*:Which while technically in the DeepSouth couldn't be farther from it in reality. It's a college town.]] Formed in 1996 by Kevin Barnes as a [[IAmTheBand solo project]], it began as folksy [[BaroquePop baroque pop]] like most other Elephant 6 projects. Derek Almstead and Bryan Poole (who frequently performs under the stage name The Late B.P. Helium) soon joined; the groups' first three albums featured this lineup, and the style continued until their fifth album, ''Aldhils Arboretum''.

This funkier sound kept on evolving on each record, and the group caught the eye of music critics with ''Sunlandic Twins'', with one song from the album even being altered and used in a commercial for Outback Steakhouse.
Their next album marked an even more drastic change from their folk-styled roots. ''Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?'' was created almost entirely by Kevin Barnes to cope with psychological issues he was experiencing at the time, and featured enough LyricalDissonance to make [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion "Komm Susser Todd"]] sound like [[Music/TheBeatles "Hey Jude"]]. It also gave birth to Barnes' [[AlterEgoActing alter ego]], a CampGay black {{Transvestite}} GlamRock star named [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Georgie Fruit]]. The next two albums, ''Skeletal Lamping'' and ''False Priest'', both were predominantly written from the viewpoint and continued the bass-heavy pop sound of the previous album.
