Of Montreals False Priest doesnt drop for two more months, but the new songs keep coming. Weve already heard Coqeut, Coqette and Hydra Fancies and now Sex Karma gives us a third look just as frenetic as the first two (via Some Kind of Awesome). Solange Knowles (Beyoncés kid sis) joins in the fun this time, dropping classic OM come-ons like You are my only luxury item / Anyone tries to steal you, Ill fight em.
Sex Karma was originally written for Knowles own record, but Barnes decided to reclaim it. I thought it would be cool if it appeared on her record, he told Spin. I sent it to her and for a while that was the plan. But I really liked it and changed my mind, and we decided to record it as a duet. Which works because the lyric ‘You look like a playground to me, player,’ is funny for a guy to sing.
Yeah, because that makes much more sense for a girl to sing. Lets be honest; Of Montreals never really been about sense though. Sex Karma delivers off-the-wall fun and raises expectations for False Priest that much higher. The album drops September 14th on Polyvinyl.
