   Paralytic Stalks

Paralytic Stalks

Paralytic Stalks' musical and lyrical directions are infinitely more personal than anything of Montreal frontman Kevin Barnes has written since 2007's Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer? (which was featured on 30 best-album lists including Pitchfork, and RollingStone, and has sold over 100,000 copies to date).

Recorded at Barnes's home studio in Athens, GA, Paralytic Stalks is a stimulating array of densely packed ideas presented with stunning agility. Each track feeds off the last in what seems a singular album-long movement that never allows you to rip your ears away. Paralytic Stalks at times resembles modern classical with its intricate compositions, while at others echoes of neo-prog, pseudo-country, and '60s pop.
