Of Montreal, Tele Novella [outside]

Trash music is my life/ because you can’t doesn’t mean you shouldn’t,” declares Kevin Barnes on “Genius in the Wind,” closer to of Montreal’s latest LP, May’s Lady on the Cusp. Nineteen albums in, Barnes continues to confound and provoke, his recent relocation from Athens, Ga., to Vermont not clipping his creative sonic maelstroms in the least. The album roils predictably eclectic, an intricate if chaotically layered barrage of styles crashing in scarring, lurid electronic waves. Lockhart quartet Tele Novella open with their gorgeously haunting and mystical ballads from last year’s Poet’s Tooth. – Doug Freeman
