RIYL: American Football, Into It. Over It., The Promise Ring
Label: Polyvinyl Records
Owen has returned after 4 years with a new full length LP entitled The Avalanche. This album “The Avalanche takes on a new refinement, with spacious musical landscapes making room for devastating lyrics that return to themes of an unravelling marriage and big endings”. This is offered in 4 different bundles, Big Scary Monster being the most limited.
Mike Kinsellaās various musical endeavours should need little introduction. From his early days with Capān Jazz right up the triumphant return of American Football, hereās a guy thatās more than made a lasting impression on a scene that while spawning countless imitators there have been few, if any, betters.
Now back again and seemingly more prolific than ever, Mike returns with his long running solo project Owen. Easily his most intense album, The Avalanche is also the most beautifully crafted, resulting in nine of the best Owen songs ever penned and an album thatās as heartbreaking as it is magnificent.
Test pressing bundle is still available here.
