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, RollingStone, etc).
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). The 2xLP (double 180-gram yellow vinyl with digital download) also includes a 12 x 24 pull-out poster.
