"A golden despondency" is how Kevin Barnes translates the meaning behind Aureate Gloom, the title he gave Of Montreal's thirteenth full-length album, out March 3.
Thirteen albums of indie rock glory? Already? Yep! Bring it, of Montreal.
The oxymoronic title is one Barnes says best describes the overall state of his life and mental outlook while working on the record: first on a writing retreat in New York City, then while demoing tracks in Athens, before finally recording at Sonic Ranch, just across the border from Juarez, Mexico in the Texan desert.
But you don't need to wait until March 3 for a taste of this truly international affair. You can listen to album opener "Bassem Sabry" now!
And now, see the track listing.
