The Gay Parade

Of Montreal - The Gay Parade

"The Gay Parade is psychedelic pop's answer to The Canterbury Tales. Mastermind Kevin Barnes presents a series of colorful characters throughout these 16 tracks --the singer likens each song to a float passing through a happy parade...The Gay Parade bursts with over-the-top, theatrical arrangements. Barnes's multitude of guests adds horn, keyboards, toy pianos, bells, whistles and other embellishments -- there's even a 42-singer chorus. Of Montrealís refreshingly honest emotions and its exuberant songs offer a much-needed escape from an angst-filled world." -Wendy Mitchell/CMJ
