of Montreal premiere new song “Empyrean Abbatoir” — listen

on January 07, 2015, 11:55am

Athens psych pop outift of Montreal has shared another track from its upcoming 13th studio album, Aureate Gloom, in anticipation of its March 3rd release through Polyvinyl Records. Following the sunny-meets-solemn vibes of “Bassem Sabry”, “Empyrean Abbatoir” finds Kevin Barnes and co. jumping from ’60s psych to ’80s new wave. Though the outfit’s penchant for hazy ambiance remains intact, the song’s core components are a driving bass line and skittish drums, which lend a much more direct, danceable sheen to of Montreal’s kooky sound. Listen in below.


Aureate Gloom Tracklist:
01. Bassem Sabry
02. Last Rites At The Jane Hotel
03. Empyrean Abbatoir
04. Aluminum Crown
05. Virgillian Lots
06. Monolithic Egress
07. Apollyon Of Blue Room
08. Estocadas
09. Chthonian Dirge For Uruk The Other
10. Like Ashoka’s Inferno of Memory
