Of Montreal – not of Montreal, Quebec, but of Athens, Georgia — has now been making music for about 15 years. Throughout those years, the band has delivered a variety of sounds, ranging from zany twee-pop and neo-psychedelia to glam and funk, while hitting all kinds of notes in between with lead singer Kevin Barnes's witty lyrics. Barnes says his mission for his band — and himself, for that matter — is to remain "always melodic, yet unpredictable," and describes Of Montreal's sound as basically a "celebration of life." Of Montreal released their 11th album, Paralytic Stalks, earlier this month, and kicked off their current tour in their hometown with Houston's own local darlings Wild Moccasins.
