Owen Pallett will release a surprise EP through Domino on September 28th. Called A Swedish Love Story has four new tunes from the man and was recorded in a week as himself describes:
To contrast Heartland’s convoluted record process, and also to cut myself a break, I recorded this EP in New York City over a week, using not much more than my violin, my Moog, a bass and a drum kit. It’s closer in sound to my first album Has A Good Home than anything else. It’s called A Swedish Love Story in tribute to one of my favourite films En Karlekshistoria and as a love letter to the Swedish pop stars who inspired it. This is probably the most posi record I’ll ever make, enjoy the mood while it lasts.
It will be released on 10″ and digital download.
01. A Man with No Ankles
02. Scandal at the Parkade
03. Honour the Dead, or Else
04. Don’t Stop (on my account)
Owen recently performed one of the new songs live and here it is via the magic of Youtube internets:
