Listen: of Montreal does a good Steely Dan on 'Dour Percentage'
Track arrives ahead of new album release, 'Paralytic Stalks'
of Montreal have prepped their eighth album in 10 years, "Paralytic Stalks," and now a month out from its release have another taste from the set.
"Dour Percentage" is at least 50 percent Steely Dan, though the band has never shied away from those 7ths and 9ths and unabashed '70s pop sound. Kevin Barnes' bouncy voice remains strong as always. Stream and download of Montreal's "Dour Percentage" below.
You can also check out "Wintered Debts" on the band's website.
"Stalks" will be out on Feb. 7 through Polyvinyl, and for you supernerds, 500 cassettes through Joyful Noise/Polyvinyl will also be available. Below is a very festive tracklist, and below that are tour dates. Always recommend the live show.
