of Montreal October 13, 2007 Roseland – Lossless Download

of Montreal brought their elaborate and entertaining stage show to Roseland on Saturday night, in a relatively short but well-played performance. The set list was more representative of the material as a whole than the Spring Hissing Fauna tour. The show also featured two new numbers slated for release on a 2008 album. The only negative was the behavior of the Saturday night midtown crowd, which was far too heavy with chatters, gazers, and text-message addicts.

Although I had written permission to record from of Montreal’s lead guitarist, I still had to deal with some venue politics–and three burly security guards hovering over me and telling me to take down my rig. Fortunately, Roseland Ballroom has an excellent Venue Manager named Linda, who assessed the situation and ultimately permitted me to record from the prime front of board position. Thanks Linda!

Overall, the results are outstanding. This is a clear and rich recording, which captures the music and bit of the party atmosphere. Enjoy!

    sorry for being an idiot but… how do you listen to flac extensions?

  2. October 15, 2007 at 11:35 am

    All the links you need are here:

    For Windows, I recommend Foobar.
    For Mac, I recommend VLC.

    If you want to burn to CD, Flac Frontend (windows), and xACT (mac) convert flac to wav.

    I’m sorry, I think I’m doing this all wrong…I downloaded the flac software, and I downloaded the Foobar software as well. But when I tried to play the file I played it through Foobar and I got a white box and it began playing but there was no video, only the music. I’m becoming frustrated and upset…please help! Sorry for being a dork but i really really want to watch this recording!

    I think that setlist is all wrong, they played Gronlandic Edit last and they also played Smells Like Teen Spirit

  17. October 11, 2008 at 10:09 pm

    Dude this is last year’s show.
    The setlist for last night is here:
