News came down yesterday that of Montreal, the long-running, shape-shifting Athens-based indie-pop project helmed by songwriter Kevin Barnes, will release a new full-length Mar. 3 via Polyvinyl.
Aureate Gloom will feature the same core cast of musicians as last year’s Lousy with Sylvianbriar— Clayton Rychlik, Bob Parins, Bennett Lewis and JoJo Glidewell—though if single “Bassem Sabry” is any indication, Barnes and company have ditched the garage-rock of that record in favor of a strange, stripped-down dirty-disco sound.
Stream “Bassem Sabry” below:
