Aureate Gloom is of Montreal’s thirteenth LP, and lead singer/band leader Kevin Barnes continues to be a musical genius. Though he has changed the band’s line up once again, the infectious melodies, esoteric references (get your dictionary), and vocal harmonies we’ve come to expect from of Montreal are all still here. Aureate means golden and… Read More
