OF MONTREAL Live @ The Rialto Theatre

April 9 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

| $14

“A golden despondency” is how Kevin Barnes translates the meaning behind Aureate Gloom, the title he gave
of Montreal’s thirteenth full-length album.
The oxymoron is one Barnes says best describes the overall state of his life and mental outlook while working on the
record: first on a writing retreat in New York City, then while demoing tracks in Athens, before finally recording at
Sonic Ranch, just across the border from Juarez, Mexico in the Texan desert.
If you’re wondering what exactly would lead Barnes to use this epithet to describe his reality at the time, look no
further than the songs themselves.
While many bands rely on vague platitudes as an attempt to make their songs universally applicable, Barnes chooses
to take the opposite tact — penning lyrics so personal they sound like entries ripped from a journal that should be
permanently kept under lock and key.
