1. There is a new album, it’s called “He Poos Clouds”. It’s contents: an atheist explanation of magical phenomena, Yukio Mishima, Julia Kristeva, Galina Ustvolskaya and ragtime, love of video game characters, the dying, Pern and modern dating, the link between condominium retail and impotence, Bartok’s 2nd string quartet, Irish metafictional characters and baking.

Owen Pallett is a violinist and singer from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he is also the genius behind Final Fantasy. Such an odd character who is quite brilliant and as always a pleasure to listen to.

So I know it’s short but that’s all I got tonight…

But before I go I will leave you with 2 tracks from Final Fantasy’s May 2006 release…

mp3: He Poos Clouds, This Lamb Sells Condos (mp3 expired)
mp3: He Poos Clouds, If I Were a Carp (mp3 expired)

Album available here

    That first song was a bit too upbeat music hall for my liking.

    But all was redeemed by the second, more morose track.

    I think that probably says more about my sensibilities that anything else though.

    Thank you : )

    Oh Coxon, you old miseryguts (N.B. said with oodles of cyber-affection)! Nowt wrong with a bit of upbeat. I’m with you on the music hall bit, though. And I like the singing kiddies!!

    Thanks Rachel, I had been meaning to have a listen to this, but was frankly put off by what I think is the worst album title in recent memory. Oh well, books & covers and all that…

    “Folky” FiL

    coxon, I couldn’t agree more…As you may have noticed from previous choices. But there seems to always be this sarcastic undertone to all his work, I suppose that is what I like about it…

    Folky Fil, I see you have returned from festival de folk. :)
    Can’t wait to hear all the goodies…And I do agree the title is just a bit much and really not even funny in the least bit. But at least you got to hear it ;)
