Symphonic glitch? Montag, on his album ALONE, NOT ALONE, makes it work, believe it or not. "Grand Luxe" sounds like trip-pop confection scored by a Francophone John Williams. The tracks here veer towards the calm and gentle -- very chanson-esque. "Perfect Vision" modulates its sunny disposition with moments of electronic glitchery. The relatively short "Time DIfference II" pours on the cheery atmosphere thick and dense, like warm syrup on pancakes. "Figures of a New Color" takes an almost opposite tack, leaning more towards stately elegance, while "Angles, Country & Terrain Connu" is much more 'traditional' folktronica. "Les Choses Se Placent" takes a lone string melody and submerges it under careful layers. Although the album is relatively short, it makes quite an impact.
