Montag is Montreal’s Antoine Bédard, an electronica artist with some indie friends in high places. For his forthcoming Carpark LP, Bédard rounded up Amy Millan, Owen Pallett, Ghislain Poirier, Au Revoir Simone, M83’s Anthony Gonzales and Beach House’s Victoria Legrand (among even more) to provide vocal comfort to his Russian Futuristic soundscapes. This is one of the few without a guest appearance but well worth cuing up in the Gum Mix.
The album’s lush, bliptastic title track “Going Places” features a cavalcade of fancy friends, though. Hear it at MySpace.
Going Places is out 6/5 on Carpark. Tracklist and cameo assignments after the jump.
