Owen Pallett

“Lewis Takes Off His Shirt”

Heartland is out now on Domino. You can also get a limited-to-300, 189-page orchestral score book of the album, available at Pallet’s website. Yes, that means a full orchestral score, including lyrics and diagrams — shit’s bound by hand too! Now why can’t they do this for the Merzbox?

Summer Cats

“TV Guide”

This track is the B-side to the upcoming “Your Timetable” single, due March 16 via Slumberland. But guess what? Neither tracks are on Songs for Tuesdays, their upcoming full-length set for release on July 14. Friends, this is music to slit your wrists to.
