Preview: Of Montreal at Trees
Of Montreal's Keven Barnes has gone through one of the most fascinating evolutions of any pop songwriter in the past two decades. Starting with 1999's The Gay Parade and continuing with last month's Paralytic Stalks, Barnes and whatever set of players he's surrounded himself with take on everything from psychedelic pop to electronica to Afrobeat. And while most bands might find switching styles has a negative influence on the size of their audience, of Montreal maintain as large a fanbase as ever.
