I got hipped to Owen through Dominic East (who rocks the mic so well for Our Lady of the Highway. With connections to both Joan of Arc and American Footabll you might expect some hard driving rock, but Owen is the solo project of Mike Kinsella and when one is holed up at home with instruments and an 8 track things tend to get a little more melancholy. The songs that i've found are quiet introspective affairs anchored by Kinsella's slightly pitchless voice. His voice is very expressive but he's not singing as much as creating a mood with his voice. I found a couple of Owen tracks on various Polyvinyl Records compilations but don't have the album yet. Been digging these songs this weekend though.

Who Found Who's Hair in Who's Bed

She's A Thief
