[News] of Montreal Releasing New Album in the Fall
of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes took to the band's Tumblr and revealed some exciting news. Following up last year's Paralytic Stalks, the band will release a new album titled Lousy with Sylvianbriar this fall. Here's what Barnes had to say:
I’m so happy to say that we’ve just finished a new album! It is titled “lousy with sylvianbriar”. We recorded it in my home studio on a 24 track tape machine. It is pretty different from Paralytic Stalks. Definitely more G Parsons than K Penderecki this time around. I wrote most of the songs while on a self imposed isolation experiment in San Francisco earlier this year, and we recorded it, over a two week period, about a month after i got back to Athens. I was influenced by the poetry of Sylvia Plath (hence the reference in the title), plus artists like the Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Flying Burrito Brothers…I can’t wait to share it with you! It won’t come out until the Fall though so I just have to be patient."
