surprised there isn't a thread on this yet. we all like Owen, don't we?

terrific stuff anyway, especially in the second half. and kudos on avoiding another album title naming disaster!

I have this strange hope it's nothing but old Sisters of Mercy covers based on that title.

AOTY so far.

Simon H., Tuesday, 2 February 2010 15:46 (ten years ago) link

That might sound a little backhanded at this point in the year, but it feels like a huge step forward compared to his previous albums (which I also enjoy).

Simon H., Tuesday, 2 February 2010 15:47 (ten years ago) link

yeah it actually caught me a little by surprise. i'd heard some of the songs as live versions and to be honest, they already sounded fully-formed then, so when the album came out with the same songs but with these HUGE, gorgeous arrangements it was like... WOW.

Roz, Tuesday, 2 February 2010 15:59 (ten years ago) link

Love this album. Favorite thing I've heard so far this year.

I can't afford more than 2 albums a month so I am going to have to wait till post-Gil Scott Heron to get this but I really want to. Plus its not on spotify and I've become all righteous about illegal downloads (except for out-of-print and mixtapes) so...

Nice artwork tho.

Yes, fantastic artwork. Which is why I bought it on vinyl. Two thick 45rpm slabs of them! Awesome.

Clerck at the store where I ordered it asked me who the album was by three times (Owen who?!) before he heard it correctly. Shrugged his shoulders to indicate the name didn't ring a bell. Album playing in the background, to which he'd been singing and humming along for some time: Funeral.

鬼の手 (Edward III), Thursday, 4 February 2010 20:02 (ten years ago) link

One thing that gets me is that it feels pretty continuous with the stuff before -- obviously the same pretty unique sensibility -- but it makes exactly the right changes to open it up to a much wider audience: grander scope, a dash of drums and electric bass, the whole relationship between orchestral instruments and electronic ones. I hope that doesn't sound like I'm just looking at it in commercial terms, but it really does manage to invite a lot more people in without really changing what it's doing.

It's also fun thinking about the concept of arrangements "modeled on the principles of electronic music," in terms of decoding them -- so you get stuff like the bit that works like Neu!, or the bit that sounds like an organ played by a sequencer (and filtered), or brass working like square-wave oscillators...

oɔsıqɐu (nabisco), Thursday, 4 February 2010 20:16 (ten years ago) link

owen & I are pals & have worked together, cards on table there ok, but that said, what a tremendous album - even the song that bugs me live ("midnight directives") works here, really beautifully, and the sequence as it unfolds is just gorgeous: it's an album I settle into like a great big book. in a sense, it reminds me of what I like about heavy metal: it's daring enough to try to create, in each song & in the songs taken together, a whole world to sink into. I feel like owen's love of his creation, the character & the world in which he lives, kind of achieves lift-off here; it's hard to take on a conceit that doesn't, at first, seem forced, but on this record it all feels really natural to me, which is the difference between a cool-sounding record and the real journey that this one is.

Lee Dorrian Gray (J0hn D.), Thursday, 4 February 2010 20:35 (ten years ago) link

arrangements "modeled on the principles of electronic music,"

what are these "principles" of electronic music? electronic sound is just another medium for producing oscillations. It is a medium through which the composer often has more precise control, but ultimately it is based on the same acoustic principles as "physical" sound. Square waves, triangle waves, etc were conceptualized and harmonically analyzed long before electronic music came about.

Decided to give in and go buy this album today- only for HMV not to have it :( Sorry Owen for you staying poor like me.

80085 (a hoy hoy), Thursday, 4 February 2010 20:40 (ten years ago) link

I think he means the set of aesthetic priorities that electronic composers might be said to have - what exactly these are isn't something I'd be in a position to state, but it does seem that composition, for electronic composers, is a different activity from composing on standard instruments of the symphony in some ways, right? or maybe not, just thinkin'

Lee Dorrian Gray (J0hn D.), Thursday, 4 February 2010 20:53 (ten years ago) link

Wow that footage of him doing Lewis Takes Off His Shirt is amazing, that and Tryst With Mephistopheles are my two favorites on the album. I loved the first two albums when they came out but Heartland feels like a combination of the very best moments from them both, it's a huge leap forward and I'm already excited to hear how the next album will sound.

Heartland and the new Hot Chip album have made this a really good start to the year for new albums.

Man, I can't stop singing "I'M NEVER GONNA GIVE IT TO YOU!" at the moment. Fantastic album, easily the best I've heard this year.

Dwight Yorke, Thursday, 4 February 2010 21:40 (ten years ago) link

i'm not sure if the songwriting is for me yet, but the arrangements and general sound of the album are v gorgeous and impressive. also there's a really wide variety of textures and melodic styles, but the transitions between them are really effortless and natural. it might just be because it's the only other indie rock violins album i've got, but it reminds me of parenthetical girls' "entanglements" in that way.

samosa gibreel, Thursday, 4 February 2010 21:46 (ten years ago) link

Man, I can't stop singing "I'M NEVER GONNA GIVE IT TO YOU!" at the moment.

OTM. i start dancing in my chair and mouthing those words a lot when that song's on -- and it's on very, very often

Am I the only one who thinks the vocals are mixed too fucking low? I can barely hear him sing, and there are some great melodies here.

rennavate, Thursday, 4 February 2010 22:21 (ten years ago) link

Man, I can't stop singing "I'M NEVER GONNA GIVE IT TO YOU!" at the moment.

That moment is such a hook that I end up playing the song on repeat about 5 times every time I listen to it.

Damn you Owen for completely distorting my listening tally over the last few weeks...

jellybean (back again) (Jill), Thursday, 4 February 2010 22:50 (ten years ago) link

Curt1s the "adapted electronic" music part came from an aborted collaboration with OMD, where they asked me to envision some of their early material as orchestral music. It was an impossible challenge... I spent about two days on the intro to "Souvenir" alone, trying to figure out some way of individually voicing a 50-piece string section to approximate the sound of a filter closing on a hissy Oberheim (or Jupiter or whatever). Although I did find some success on "Of All The Things We Made", I eventually had to bail, it was taking too much out of me and my personal connection to those early OMD records is too deep. Revising them seemed like it was belittling them. But some of the solutions that I had come up with over that project stuck with me and I adapted them into the arrangements for Heartland. I could give specific examples but it'd be about as tedious an exercise as trying to write a melody based on an Eigenvector har har har.

i love that shit, although in my experience it's mostly been drummers figuring out how to approximate electronically-generated beats & sounds.

A collab with OMD, wow...
A friend of mine told me how you played the opening songs of Dazzle Ships as an encore at a gig in Utrecht last year (or was it '08?) - I was sooo pissed I wasn't there. Luckily I now have tickets for the Amsterdam gig in march.

willem, Thursday, 4 February 2010 23:52 (ten years ago) link

Just to be clear, this isn't something that particularly sounds like "let me arrange everything to imitate synths," at least not to me -- it's just something to think about when the arrangements/instruments behave in ways that are a little unexpected. It might not have occurred to me if I hadn't read it somewhere and then thought, you know: ah, yes, those strings there do do that, don't they.

I think I made the "voice mixed too low" note when talking about He Poos Clouds, but it doesn't seem like an issue to me here. (Maybe because the sonic profile of this one is lower and warmer? It felt like more of an issue when the voice was up against a lot of mid-rangey strings.)

BTW, am I alone in this experience, or does this album present to other people at first as great but not-super-lively, and then repeated listening reveals it's way, WAY more lively than you thought at first?

BTW, am I alone in this experience, or does this album present to other people at first as great but not-super-lively, and then repeated listening reveals it's way, WAY more lively than you thought at first?

Absolutely. The first listen was very impressive, but I was almost too enmeshed in the arrangements and the leaps forward/sideways in terms of what Owen's been doing with percussion and countermelodies and texture. The second and third were spent wrapping my head around what the hell was going on with Lewis and his wife and Cockatrices and such. And while clearly the melodies were embedding themselves in my brain, it wasn't until recently that I realized how much the album really drives itself forward. There's a KICK to it that appeared in moments on the last two (Dream of W&R, Song Song Song, etc.) but it's somehow less stately/mannered than Has a Good Home and He Poos Clouds.

Alex in Montreal, Friday, 5 February 2010 03:08 (ten years ago) link

Plus, things like

For a man can be bought, and a man can be sold,
And the price of a hundred thousand unwatered souls
Is a bit of meat and a bit of coal.

should not be nearly as catchy as they are. Humming this shit EVERYWHERE. Haven't seen Owen since the He Poos Clouds preview at Lambi - at the time translating the string quartet parts for solo violin was mind-blowing...looking forward to seeing how the new arrangements morph for live concerts.

Alex in Montreal, Friday, 5 February 2010 03:11 (ten years ago) link

Oh, and while Owen's around answering questions about recording procedures and stuff...where does Spectrum 14th Century fit in?

If Heartland is totally from the perspective of Lewis, is the EP a collection of disparate voices just supplementing with context? Are any of those "Lewis" songs as well, or should we just treat them as vaguely connected bonuses? (Specifically is The Butcher supposed to be in the voice of "Owen, God of Spectrum", because that's the only way I can make head or tails of it).

Question though Owen- did you decide to just go by your name after they printed up all the sleeves to your records? I noticed when they shipped in they all say
Final Fantasy on the spine and theres a sticker on the front with you name. Just curious.

Evan, Friday, 5 February 2010 04:35 (ten years ago) link

I think Owen's checked out of this thread. Or at least from answering questions. Which makes sense.

This is from P4k:

From now on, Owen Pallett will be known as Owen Pallett-- we'll have to put those bad jokes about hit points and geeks in sweatpants to rest. According to a message from Pallett, "the laws of trademark infringement exist for good reason, and so I am voluntarily retiring my band name."

Yeah but I was wondering how last minute that decision was, since it still says Final Fantasy on all the record sleeves, but the sticker says his name. These dull little things hold my curiosity.

Hey Bob (Scik Mouthy), Wednesday, 15 January 2020 20:26 (four months ago) link

I need to listen to this record again asap. The problem with having a mental list of albums you love is that the list keeps getting longer and longer, so it's nice to be reminded of a record you love that you haven't listened to lately, for no particularly good reason!

Josh in Chicago, Wednesday, 15 January 2020 21:05 (four months ago) link

idk if this was really "public knowledge", but there was a re-issue of this album back in 2014 or so that included a number of bonus tracks. I know the "Deluxe Edition" is available on the iTunes store (and on CD format); I don't know about streaming services, because I don't use them. (I do use Tidal but I think it's bad luck to search for your own music on streaming services for some reason.)

The "Deluxe Edition" includes an instrumental b-side from the "Lewis Takes Action" single ("A Watery Day"), and then the entirety of the "Export EP". "Export" was a bit of a weird thing. I originally had this idea that I might record re-imagined versions of Heartland's songs that were stripped down and sung by other singers. I recorded beds for them, and started soliciting certain friends of mine to sing them. The wrangling process was more than I'd bargained for, and I got impatient. Fall 2010 was a frustrating bit of time for me. My guitarist (the brilliant Thom Gill) abruptly left, which was for the best (on a global level, he's a genius and should be doing his own thing). I had been in talks with new management, which made me optimistic for 'what would happen in the 2010s', and those talks abruptly fell through. There was some other stuff going on at the time, I can't remember what.

At the time, I'd only experienced one episode of adult depression (Spring 2007)-- funny to think about it now that depression/anxiety have become such a defining feature of my personality/existence. But in December 2010 I fell into a depression. I began cobbling together some unreleased stuff, including the instrumentals to this "Heartland reimagined" EP, and other fragments of things, to put together what would become the "Export EP". Prior to a set I played in Osaka, my last set of the year, I started sobbing desperately in front of my friend who worked at P-Vine. The year had been overwhelming and I was just exhausted. That night, in a daze, I uploaded "Export EP" to Soundcloud instead of bothering to consult anybody about a proper release for it. It was ignored. (The depression lifted a few days later and I had a really happy and healthy few years; 2011 especially was a really great one.)

Anyway you might be interested to try and track down the deluxe edition of Heartland for that EP. The best track on it is a really fucking good version of "The Great Elsewhere" from that Heartland Reimagined thing. Shara Nova (fka Shara Worden aka My Brightest Diamond) was the first and only person I solicited to record their vocals, and she... absolutely slayed it. The version has Shahzad Ismaily on drums and Thom Gill on guitar, I'm playing Rhodes, and three NYC string player luminaries (Rob Moose violin, Nadia Sirota viola, Clarice Jensen cello). Here it is if you're interested. The version began as a joke that Thom and I used to play at sound check but we decided it was actually amazing and recorded it.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 13 March 2020 05:51 (two months ago) link

"Recorder"'s OST is not gonna be released. It works really well in the context of the movie, but not-so-much on its own. (The same is true for the score I did for the HBO doc "Suited"). I do have four soundtracks mastered and ready for release-- Anton Corbijn's "Life", M Blash's "The Wait", Shannon Walsh's "Illusions Of Control" and Matt Wolf's newer doc "Spaceship Earth"-- the last of which is 80 minutes of orchestral tootling that is a hybrid of Michael Nyman and Aaron Copland and is something I'm really proud of. Variety reviewed the film and said the score was "tremendous" :)

I've got the Final Fantasy-era material all re-mastered and it sounds insanely good, we're literally just waiting on my label to upload it to DSPs. The new album has a release date but I can't announce it yet-- I'm not anticipating that Covid is gonna push it back but I can't be sure sure.

Can't wait! I was the sound recordist for HBO's Suited - loved that you came onboard for it and the score was great. Excited to catch some of these other films you did.

tomorrow, Saturday, 14 March 2020 15:00 (two months ago) link

Man, that was such a weird project, Suited. You know I scored the entire film based on a slow-core temp score? The temp score was like... Low and Loscil and stuff. Got the whole thing approved by the director? That score was REALLY beautiful. Then, on the last day of recording that score (which was also the next-to-last project recorded at Magic Shop in NYC before it closed-- that's where Bowie made The Next Day and Black Star), the super-famous producer of that film, god bless her, called the director with her feedback on the temp score: "why does this sound like a score for a documentary about cancer survivors? I want it to sound fun! like Arcade Fire! or like.. fun. (the band)" I ended up having to redo the entire score as indie pap (I say this with affection), using pretty much entirely in-the-box Logic instruments-- I had already spent the budget on the recording sessions and had no other choice. Def my worst score, ha! Good doc though.

meaner stinks meat bake it cone (flamboyant goon tie included), Saturday, 14 March 2020 15:36 (two months ago) link

Amazing. I'm glad to hear the director approved, he and I were close before and thru shooting. We were, together, invited to one of the subjects' bachelor parties, a night of laser tag with his family. Any chance the original will ever see the light of day?

tomorrow, Saturday, 14 March 2020 22:18 (two months ago) link

Oooh that's amazing! All the subjects seemed really cool, I wanted to hang out with the cellist especially. And no to the original score appearing at any time... there was one cue that had a melody I liked so much that I used it for a new song, but aside from that, it's on the rocks.

Maria Edgelord (cryptosicko), Friday, 17 April 2020 19:37 (one month ago) link

With reissues (as opposed to new releases) they're kind of lower priority and so every DSP does their own thing. They're not up on Tidal yet either (my DSP of choice). I'm not even posting on socials about anything until everything is live

Both reissues are great, new life to familiar music.

I have no idea what remastering is from a technical perspective but I *can* say the songs hit different (in a great way).

unashamed and trash (Unctious), Monday, 20 April 2020 14:29 (one month ago) link

They're on Apple Music now. Listening to Has a Good Home and I can definitely here more clarity on (for example) "Furniture" and "The CN Tower Belongs To the Dead," and I'm not the type to typically notice such things unless the upgrading is super dramatic.
