Hi! First, please welcome our new Patrol Leader, Stompclapclap. *clapping and stomping* Patrol Leaders SCC and QG would like to draw your attention to this:

The of Montreal Tenth Anniversary Tribute

July marks the tenth anniversary of the release of "Cherry Peel", let's celebrate with a covers tribute album!


1. Record an of Montreal song. Any song recorded and released by of Montreal will be OK. If it's a cover you recorded previously that's OK. Any level of faithfulness to the song is OK, and changing it up and making it your own is especially OK. Any experience level of playing, singing, or recording is OK - the best compilation will have a wide variety, so even if you have no software and don't know where to begin, we encourage you to still participate. If you need any advice or audio technical help, please don't hesitate to ask us, we would love to help! If you are technically disinclined, you can even just record your song onto a cassette and send it to us. We'll do anything we can to help you share the of Montreal love. If you wish to "call" a song, send us an email ( to reserve it.

2. Save your song as either an mp3 (preferably high bitrate) or FLAC.
Email us the file or link. If it's small enough, just email it to us directly at If it's too big to email, upload it to a public host like sendspace and email us the link (or message us, instead of posting publicly). Again, if you need any help with this, please don't hesitate to ask, we would love to help you and would hate for something so easy to be a hindrance to sharing your song.

3. Get your song in by
July 27, 2007. The compilation will be available for free download shortly after, with cover art, and will also be mailed to the band as gifts.
