Fresh Track: Christopher Owens “Here We Go”

After the the unbridled success of 2011 Girls LP Father, Son, Holy Ghost, it appeared as if the stars were aligning for the San Francisco duo led by Christopher Owens. Just as the duo’s stock reached its peak, Owens announced in July that he would walk away from the project. Fans were left in limbo, awaiting the songwriter’s next move.

Yesterday, Owens reassured listeners that the wait would be brief with the announcement of his solo record Lysandre, due to drop on Fat Possum in mid-January (pre-order). With the announcement came the release of the album’s first single “Here We Go.” Owens’ sedated delivery, reminiscent of late indie rock Eeyore Elliot Smith, sounds at home against the track’s rolling, acoustic arpeggios. Flourishes of flute and a few whistling bars on harmonica add color to an otherwise bleak landscape. Here, we find Owens on a trip to New York City hoping to be welcomed with open arms and minds. The track is nothing short of gorgeous. Listen to “Here We Go” and check out the track listing for Lysandre below.

Fresh Track: Cat Power “Ruin”

Cat Power, aka Chan Marshall, is not a new comer to indie rock.  She has been on the block some time, dealing with multiple bands, drug and alcohol problems, and every other thing under the sun.  She has produced 8 LPs and 2 EPs during her time, some critically acclaimed and others not so much.  But all this experience has brought her the one grand thing that a life with such triumphs and troubles promises: soul.  She sings with her heart on her sleeve, her voice in the realm of Fiona Apple and the late Amy Winehouse.  Her latest single, entitled “Ruin”, begins with a piano before a pop beat drops in.  It’s a song that has music inspiring feelings of angst with Chan’s voice providing a calming presence throughout.  Life has a way of awarding it’s own prerogative to people, and Chan certainly is displaying hers in his song.  Her latest album, Sun, is due out on September 4 on Matador Records. Pre-order via iTunes. Listen to “Ruin” and check out the track list below.
