of Montreal play Berlin

Avant-garde pop collective of Montreal graced the stage of Berlin's Admiralspalast Studios for a fun fueled 1.5 hour music session with dance, theatre and costumes to boot! Your eyes and ears stood to attention as Kevin Barnes bounced across the stage; kissing pigs (or those dressed like pigs) and screaming soprano into the mic. Prior to the gig I interviewed the frontman and founder about his 10th release 'False Priest' and got an insight into his intentions to create an album (co-produced by Jon Brion - of Kanye West fame-) channeling r'n'b, rapper-esque tendencies. The self-proclaimed 'downer' is probably one of the most introverted artists I've ever interviewed. Known for his outlandish and hedonistic stage performances, you definitely wouldn't think so. Click here to see one of his most outlandish and shocking 'costume changes'. NSFW.

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.
