Of Montreal Cherry Peel

Cherry Peel

Of Montreal has written what might be the best record of the year - a beautiful foray into the world of positive, loving, joyfully honest two-minute pop songs that aren't afraid to tell it like it is (or at least how it should be). Kevin Barnes has shared his first major vision with the world, and we're better for having listened - surprisingly complex. Fusing the shameless fun of Jonathan Richman with the mega-melodies of the Beach Boys by the way Weezer and the Beatles. Barnes has created his own signature style by building on the foundations of the geniuses who have come before him. - FLAGPOLE
