Featured Release This Week From Of Montreal

Sep 18, 2016

Innocence Reaches is the 14th album from Of Montreal, the band founded by songwriter and frontman Kevin Barnes twenty years ago in Athens, Georgia.  It doesn't seem like Of Montreal has been around for two whole decades, and that's due in part to the fact that there is no other band quite like this one.  Barnes named his group after a woman he had been in a releationship with who was "of Montreal."  Many players have come and gone through the ranks of the band over the years, but the psychedelic pop/glam rock sound has always remained true to Barnes' vision.  Innocence Reaches draws some inspiration from the latest EDM sounds, with Kevin Barnes remarking:   "I came up picking apart the Beach Boys, the Beatles and symphonic pieces.  But last year, I was...thinking about low end and sound collage.  It was an extra layer to geek out to."
