Mingusings Video

Dottie just informed us that the new video for Mingusings is going to be premiered today on Stereogum. Here's what she said : "Made by Nick Gould, our very own video tiger, the vid features the adventures of ninja David as he travels the world. See if you recognize scenes from our Spin photo shoot!"

The Spin photo shoot (which would have been perfect without the infamous moustache!) :


Of course, you will also remember that the video comes free with of Montreal's latest single, which is not "Mingusings" (because why make sense when you can just confuse people, uh?), but "For Our Elegant Caste." Buy it from Polyvinyl if you haven't done so already.

And here is the video! The best since Heimdalsgate, don't you think? Or maybe just the Best.

(Also, for those of you who are lucky enough to go and see the band (+ Jon fucking Brion) in Oakland this very Friday and haven't heard about it yet, the plan is to turn this show into a balloon fest... Bring your own balloons, or at least save your breath to help Townhallers and Booty Patrollers blow theirs!)


  1. I think the balloons went off a little early. Here is my attempt at the setlist:
    Nonpareil of Favor
    Bunny ain't no kind of rider
    Wraith Pinned to the Mist
    And I've seen a bloody Shadow
    Party's Crashing Us
    Heimsdelgate Like a Promethean Curse
    October is Eternal
    A Sentence of Sorts in Konsignvinger
    Beware our Nubile Miscreants
    Cover - "Bat for Lashes"?
    Cover Crazy Girl?
    For our Elegant Caste
    Touched Something Hollow
    An Eluardian Instance
    Rapture Rapes The Muses
    She's A Rejector
    The past is a Grotesque Animal

  2. Thanks for the setlist!
    I can help you complete it : The two covers were "Daniel" (Bat For Lashes) and "Moonage Daydream" (Bowie) - the crazy girl song actually is a new song called "Metal Finds Troll"
    (I posted a photo of the actual setlist on our facebook page - haven't done it here yet!)
