'Paralytic Stalks' musical and lyrical directions are infinitely more personal than anything of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes has written since 2007's 'Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?' (which was featured on 30 bestalbum lists including Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, etc., and has sold over 100,000 copies... worldwide sales all combined of Montreal has sold over 500,000 albums to date). Recorded at Barnes's home studio in Athens, GA, 'Paralytic Stalks' is a stimulating array of densely packed ideas presented with stunning agility. Each track feeds off the last in what seems a singular album-long movement that never allows you to rip your ears away. 'Paralytic Stalks' at times resembles modern classical with its intricate compositions, while at others echoes of neo-prog, pseudo-country, and 60s pop. The album cover features new art from David Barnes (who recently published his debut art book What's Weird? on Polyvinyl). "Give the man a cake, he's a genius." - NME "It's an impressive one, jumping from unplugged confessional to atonal weirdness and then back to sunny '60s-style psych-pop, all while still taking aim at fake idols." - Spin.com
