Montag: Alone, Not Alone
Artist Montag
Album Alone, Not Alone
Label Carpark Records
Released 2/21/2005
On Alone, Not Alone, Montag delivers some orchestral pop where vocals have a noticeable importance - Antoine's passion for vintage atmospheres and naive melodies find a balanced mix with the album's electronic elements. Having learned the violin as a child, it is easy to understand why Montag wanted to include classical instrumentation in his recordings. Used to working on his own, this time Antoine wanted to involve his friends in the making of the album. Collaborators include James Cardiff (bass and electronics - of Broadcast), Francis Amireault (drums - of Cian √Čthrie), Amy Millan (vocals, of Stars and Broken Social Scene), Ariel Engle (vocals). The album was mastered by Sixtoo (Ninja Tune), one of Montreal best known hip hop artists. Through these collaborations, Montag brings a different meaning to the album's title.
