The Belle Jar- Union Station
Mar 5, 2014
Not native to any sound demographic in the US, of Montreal is back for a third time in two years with Paralytic Stalks.
The first track, “Gelid Ascent,” has an uncanny resemblance to Bright Eye’s “Approximate Sunlight.” The vocals are nearly hidden under the gargling synths, but you are just able to make out the put down after put down from moaning lead singer, David Barnes. The echoing tracks eerie force draws you into a deeper, more confrontational, side of life.
