The artistry of Of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes is relatively pure and unambiguously ambitious, disdainful of trends, hype, and restraint. Over the course of 15 studio albums that have increasingly moved toward one-man bands, his signature love of glam-indie pop-funk is continually tweaked but unmistakably Barnes. Onstage, the light shows, costume changes, and pseudo-dance routines can’t quite obscure the surprisingly splendid ensemble music. It’s all a cult worth embracing.
