Casper and the Cookies Love Modern Science

If you know Of Montreal then you know Casper and the Cookies. C&tC are just one of the many many spin offs, side projects, and other experiments by members and ex-members of the uber popular band.

Casper and the Cookies has been in a constant state of flux since it's origin back in 1998 when Jason Nesmith founded the group. Since then there have been more members than you or I could count. Today, there are currently three members including Jason, Kay Stanton (an old member who's still hanging around) and Jim Hix. However, their album Modern Science has tracks on it that features no less than 35 musicians including members of Of Montreal, Apples in Stereo, and Pylon.

Modern Science is filled with paradoxes like these as well as brilliant psychedelic power pop; the kind Of Montreal stopped playing so long ago. It's a brilliant little record and if you've ever considered yourself a fan of Elephant 6, of Montreal, Yellow Pills comps, Nuggets box sets or just crunchy guitars you'll want to find Modern Science when it comes out May 12th!
