of Montreal - 'Wintered Debts'

Genius schizophrenic (p)opera

We know Kevin Barnes has got major split-personality issues (his alter ego is a glam dick-swinger called Georgie Fruit, FFS), but this is new territory, sweeping between Anton Newcombe deadbeat gloom, George Harrison dream harmonies and Elton John foot-stomping over 7:33 of schizophrenic (p)opera. Give the man a cake, he’s a genius.
