With Of Montreal’s mounting success, it seems frontman Kevin Barnes is just steps from signing to a major; for the time being, though, Polyvinyl’s got one more of his brilliant noise-pop opuses to call their own. Crafted during a depressing time living in Norway, Barnes tempered his dreary surroundings by writing some of the cheeriest pop of his eight-album career. Tracks like “A Sentence of Sorts in Kongsvinger” rank up there with his absolute finest (despite the sad tales involved), while “Gronlandic Edit” ekes out a space for disco within the pop master’s oeuvre. Amazing!
