The new of Montreal single has everything you'd expect from write an essay the Athens, Ga. band -- that is if you've just returned from a month-long cruise where the imperial ballroom house band plays nothing but ELO, Steely Dan and David Bowie covers -- sign me up for the next departure -- and the weather was gorgeous with intermittent showers of flutes, Fruit Loops and cherry cola.

If that seems too good or too sugary to be true, make up your own adventure by downloading the track below. Recently, band founder Kevin Barnes described the forthcoming album "Paralytic Stalks" (due out February 7 on Polyvinyl) as "a bit more esoteric, and it’s probably not something everybody’s going to like. The songs are way more intimate and confessional."

"Dour Percentage" - of Montreal

Bonus: Listen to the band's recent Live at KDHX session.
