TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 24 September 2010
Of (with a small 'o') Montreal like having fun and want to make
sure that we have fun too. They make generous, barmy and totally
infectious music. Laugh-out-loud, dance-until-you-drop music!

Their new album 'False Priest' cocks a loving snoot at
just about every genre of the last three decades and comes
back with something beyond mere synthesis. The thirteen
tracks in the collection demonstrate songwriting and
performances of the very highest calibre.

Singer/front man Kevin Barnes is a veritable firebrand.
Clever, funny and deliciously irreverent. He has a way
with words which place him a close second to Frank Zappa
at his most outrageously challenging best.

'Godly Intersex' for example is a hugely appetising slice
of surreal funk; part Ziggy Stardust, part Prince with
Mr Barnes demonstrably high on his own strident falsetto!

The wonderful Janelle Monau guests on a couple of tracks :
the manically upbeat 'Our Riotous Defects' and the slick
'Enemy Gene'. (Do hear her debut album 'The ArchAndroid'
too as soon as you can!)

Beyonce's little sister Solange puts in an appearance on 'Sex
Karma' and leaves with her head held high and dignity intact!

'Famine Affair' is one of the drollest break-up songs I've
ever heard. Mr Barnes vents his spleen in an arrangement
bursting with venomous energy and wildly wayward harmonies.

The angst continues in 'Casualty Of You', a very dark little
ditty full of sour and very creepy ravings and rantings. (Brrrrr!)

Final track 'You Do Mutilate' provides a very jolly musical conclusion
wholly at odds with the jarringly contradictory lyrical subject matter.
It is just these incongruities which makes the album so enjoyable.

Mad, bad, and very good to know.

Highly Recommended.
