of Montreal returned earlier this month with a new album called White Is Relic/Irrealis Mood. The follow-up to 2016’s Innocence Reaches was inspired by ’80s-era extended dance mixes and saw central songwriter Kevin Barnes turning to the classic works of Angela Davis, Noam Chomsky, and Mark E Smith for positive guidance through our current political crisis.
