Album Notes
Montreallegory is the aptly named offering from Laman O'Nera. Like the city that has a history of contradictions, the songs within range from hymnal (The Girl Who Delivers Eulogies) to sexy (Lili St.Cyr, Metaphysical Girl), to philosophical (Some Days Never Come,) , witty (A Notorious Daughter, N.D.G. Romances) and the absurd (Propaganda Vehicle, Anhedonic). The album fuses the numerous musical hooks, lyrical humor and heartbreak of The Smiths or The Kinks best work with the Velvet Underground's cinematic tendencies. An honest album where every song stands up on its own merit and repeated listenings.

Would love to hear this live...
I was amazed at the quality of Laman's voice, the arrangements, the layers, the whole recording. This is definitely not the work of an amateur! I have started by reading the lyrics, which I found very touching and inimitable because they all contain little bits and pieces of the singer's life in Montreal . Anybody who lived there, would recognise the issues, the problems, the images conveyed.. the feelings, the smells and the places it brings to life. This album is a mix of sadness and blues, irony and wit, sometimes smiling at misfortune or tragedy, which I find very refreshing. I have so many favorites… all the songs are special and good, which is quite rare and unusual for a whole album. Thank you for this excellent piece of work!
Not only are the lyrics superb, but the music accompanying it doesn`t mask them;it gives them even more emphasis and importance. I find it has touches of the Rolling Stones, rawness of 60`s-70s bands, Bob Dylan, the Doors, black music of the 50s-60s, jazz and modern indie, sometimes even traces of sensual tango or latin dances); it`s very unique as a genre, wouldn`t know which category to put it in. I absolutely loved it! Would like to hear this live...
