Owen Pallett – neue EP "A Swedish Love Story"

Gerade ist Owen Pallett auf ausführlicher Festival-Tournee und präsentiert dort sein aktuelles Album „Heartland“, für das er nun bereits das zweite Mal für den Polaris Prize nominiert wurde. In etwas mehr als einem Monat wird er nun bereits eine kleine Erweiterung dazu veröffentlichen. „A Swedish Love Story“ ist eine Sammlung von vier Songs, die es nicht auf „Heartland“ geschafft haben. Aber dazu lest am Besten, was Owen dazu schreibt:

I had to cut a bunch of songs off Heartland and these were some of them. These are the ones that I cut ‚cause they sounded too poppy. Nor are these aren’t the versions that I recorded in Iceland with Jeremy… those versions will never see the light of day because they weren’t right.

But these versions are right. I finally got these songs out of my intestines. Passed them. I recorded them in about a week with Rusty Santos acting as engineer, producer and mixer and used „drums“ and „bass“ (courtesy of Shahzad Ismaily) and „guitars“ (courtesy of Thomas Gill) and „synths“ that I did myself, as well as that delicious DI’d violin sound that classical players hate.

It’s called „A Swedish Love Story“ in tribute to my friend Kalle Josephson, who works as a party-starter and lecturer in Stockholm. He introduced me to the movie En Karlekshistoria and also asked me why I hadn’t recorded more songs like „What Do You Think Will Happen Next?“—a song which was itself inspired by Jens Lekman whose Rocky Dennis EP was destroying me around the same time

SO ANYWAY it’s poppy and well-sung and Rusty did an amazing job and I hope it finds its way to a couple of your dance parties. Don’t get upset when you hear „Honour“ it doesn’t sound like you’ll expect but it sounds better than it ever did.“
