The band is identified as part of the Elephant 6 collective. Throughout its existence, of Montreal's musical style has evolved from vaudeville late 60's Beatles and Kinks-influenced psychedelic pop to a mixture of electronica, funk, glam, and afrobeat music influenced by Prince, Talking Heads, Os Mutantes and David Bowie.
Aureate Gloom is their thirteenth studio album.
