of Montreal Celebrate Their B-Side Collection with a Playlist of Favorite Rarities


Talk about prolific: of Montreal have only been releasing music since 1997, and have already recorded 11 albums. In that time, they’ve moved from fey, lo-fi indie pop to glammed-up funk, and have broadened their sound on each release. With such a vast back catalog to choose, Kevin Barnes and co. have just released Daughter of Cloud, a collection of the best b-sides and rarities from the of Montreal archives. You can hear it now, a week early, on Rdio.

Of course, every band has at least a few quality b-sides lying around — that’s why Barnes compiled an Rdio-exclusive playlist of his favorite rarities by other musicians on The Knives of Others playlist. Listen to the best songs you’ve never heard, below:
