Those oh-so Ethereal Frenchmen

This may be considered the high-class version of Postal Service, although this album is certainly lighter on the lyrics and concentrates more on emphasizing the mood of the notes. What stems from this formula is a product best-suited for a cloudy afternoon in the winter.

mostly smoothly

a nice album, many pieces have a certain late 1970s experimental electronics feel to them. But as it is modern electronics the sounds produced are so much smoother than in the 70s, making the pieces quite enjoyable; they could be used for relaxing if only they were longer, but if you just want stressless melodious music while reading or cooking or having a meal with friends, or want to prepare for a relaxation or meditation or back-to-nature session: then this is a nice album to play.

They Say All Music Guide

After a brief scene-setting introduction, the lovely “Grand Luxe” starts Montag’s second full-length release sounding for all the world like a French-Canadian version of the minimalist-synth Brits Pram, with leader Antoine Bédard sharing lead vocals with guest Ariel Engle, in her best imitation of Rosie Cuckston’s wispy vocal style. Stars’ Amy Millan is the other female singer on Alone, Not Alone, adding her alluring trills to two songs, including the divine electro-pop gem “Perfect Vision.” Elsewhere, Bédard largely goes it alone, his dark-toned, lightly accented whisper of a voice taking a back seat to the lovely, crystalline synth tones. Alone, Not Alone only just skates by on lashings of glacial atmosphere on its less developed songs, but when Bédard’s melodic sense matches his knack for arrangements, as on the Stereolab-like drone pop of the first half of the multi-part “Angles, Country + Terrain Connu,” Alone, Not Alone is as good as contemporary indie electronica gets. – Stewart Mason
