Owen Pallett – Heartland [2010]

January 19, 2010

Album post #22. Heartland by Owen Pallett, who formerly performed under the moniker Final Fantasy. Every song is incredibly orchestrated with surprising twists and turns.   Though I’ve listened to it over 15 times I only know a couple of words. This is because I get so wrapped up in the melodies carried by strings and horns I forget to listen to what he is saying.  His voice becomes an instrument for me.

I suggest listening to this album on lala.com the whole way through, but you can sample a couple songs from Heartland on Owen’s Myspace.  You can also download the single Lewis Takes Action in exchange for your email from his website here.  Please excuse the Final Fantasy video game scenes below.  It was the only studio recording that WMG didn’t remove.

  1. Freaking awesome. Dude, you need to come to coachella…

  2. im gonna be at coachellaaaaa! YAY!

  3. When I saw him live he played the song Lewis Takes Off His Shirt
    When he was introducing it he said “This next song is about a guy named Lewis who is out biking. it’s really hot so he takes his shirt off. Then h looks up and sees God looking down on him lustfully and this is his rebuttal.”
    It probably wasn’t that exactly but I just liked that introduction so I thought I’d share. It’s a really great song!
