    Of Montreal's latest EP, The Controller Sphere leans its focus upon an exploration of smashed up sounds and elongated instrumental moments engaging in artistic expression, as opposed to roughing out the typical confines of our wider known verse and chorus constructed melodies. Though only five tracks, the pure oddness of each creation within the EP deliver enough unique swells and bursts to hold the listeners attention for nearly every moment of electronic bustling.
