Of Montreal's music isn't going to work for everyone.
Frontman Kevin Barnes knows that.
“I understand that certain people, some people, aren't interested ... that they don't really look to music to provide that kind of stimulation or whatever it is,” Barnes told music blog Consequence of Sound. “It's not for everybody obviously, and I don't really want to antagonize people. I just want my art to communicate with people, and hopefully it does.”
The band's latest album, “Paralytic Stalks,” was recorded at Barnes' home studio in Athens, Ga.
Classically trained violinist Kishi Bashi has joined of Montreal's touring line-up and Barnes' songwriting has branched out in modern classical compositions as well as brushes with '60s pop, country and other styles.
