Last year, Kevin Barnes and his Georgian psych-pop group of Montreal released their latest record ‘Innocence Reaches’. Fewer than six months later they’re back with a new collection of songs.
Their ‘Rune Husk’ EP was surprise-released over the weekend and is the first record to be launched on Kevin’s Sybaritic Peer label. It features four previously unreleased tracks: ‘Internecine Larks’, ‘Stag To The Stable’, ‘Widowsucking’ and ‘Island Life’.
‘Stag To The Stable’ is about as close as the band are ever likely to get to a “classic” rock song, but don’t worry if you want some of their classic, noisy and often bizarre take on alt-pop. ‘Windowsucking’ and ‘Island Life’ definitely bring that to the table.

A rich but straggling album.
Aiming for a more accessible sound, Kevin Barnes’ new, lighthearted record is an oddly frustrating listen.
It’s the second single from forthcoming record ‘Innocence Reaches,’ and we’ve got the first spin.
They’ve also aired the lead single ‘it’s different for girls’.
