Above: a clip of Kevin Barnes of local psych-pop outfit of Montreal performing “Heimdalsgate Like a Promethean Curse” as part of Vice’s “Noisey Acoustics” series. (He also performed “Feminine Effects” with the help of vocalist Rebecca Cash). Barnes takes an, um, interesting approach to his solo acoustic performance of the tune; at times, his voice does a weirdly David Byrne-ish thing.
“wonderful,” proclaims YouTube user vampirevegan.
User Dose25 says: “Watchedï»¿ this while high the other night, couldn’t tell if it was a joke or not, seemed to be a very obvious parody of the hipster douche stereotype.”
