Bizarre celebrations

We all know about Kevin Barnes and flamboyance. Well, their new album cover / promo photos might take the cake.

The album cover, admittedly, isn't that shocking. Tacky? Yes. Shocking for Of Montreal? Not really. But scrolling down, I also saw this.

Really? Are we going to stoop to this level now? It was one thing to become an (even more) androgynous Bowie/ Prince combination. It's yet another to add in a bit of the Village People to the mix. Should we be worried about the quality of this album based on the promo photo? Probably not. But when talking about the People, we also have to keep in mind that it very well could evolve to this. And no one wants that....do we?
