Limited edition colored vinyl LP pressing, includes digital download. Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? is Of Montreal's landmark 2007 album. The release defined Of Montreal's career and continues to be hailed as a classic. It also happens to be Polyvinyl's all-time best-selling album to date. With Hissing Fauna, Of Montreal created it's masterpiece. It's an irresistible and remarkable album, sounding like a logical extension of the erratic indie-disco sounds of The Sunlandic Twins. However, Hissing Fauna is also the most personal Of Montreal album to date, with Kevin Barnes pouring tremendous amounts of emotion, heartbreak, frustration and elation into it's 12 tracks. Written and recorded primarily during what he calls "an insane year," Hissing Fauna saw Barnes adopt a new writing style. It's an unabashedly autobiographical attempt from a songwriter whose early material tended towards characters and story-songs. Barnes continues down the whimsical pop funk path, while changing up it's lyrical scope; and Hissing Fauna balances it's poppy nature while showcasing brutal and unflinching honesty.
