of Montreal – “Feminine Effects”

MICHAEL ROFFMAN/Consequence of Sound

of Montreal will release their rarities compilation, Daughter of Cloud, on October 23rd via Polyvinyl/Joyful Noise. We’ve heard two relics thus far (“Sails, Hermaphroditic”, “Our Love is Senile”), and now there’s another lost gem to download: “Feminine Effects”. Thanks to vocals by Kevin Barnes’ find, Rebecca Cash, the milky country psych-ballad feels like a warped St. Vincent track, or at least something Annie Clark might sing in a hotel lounge in Kansas City.

“I wrote the song many years ago, and for a long time I was searching for the right girl to sing the lead vocals,” Barnes told Rolling Stone, who premiered the track. “I tried a bunch of different people before I discovered Rebecca Cash. She helped me realize the old school honky tonk vibe I was envisioning.”

Daughter of the Cloud comprises 17 rarities/unreleased songs culled from 2007-2012. Consult the full tracklist below, in addition to dates for the band’s forthcoming tour shortly after.
