New Music: Christopher Owens- Here We Go
I will not delve into the history of Christopher Owens and his time spent with Girls; I did that a couple of weeks ago which you can read here. Today, the singer/songwriter released the song(s) Lysandre's Theme/Here We Go that doesn't stray too far away form his previous band's Father, Son, Holy Ghost LP, except for the flutes. Lysandre's Theme is only about 30 seconds long, so this should only be counted as one song. Here We Go is gorgeous. Listen below:
Owens also released a press statement about the making of his new LP, Lysandre, and how it was influenced by a girl he fell in love with while on tour with Girls. I won't bore you with the details. If you want to read the statement, head on over to Stereogum. Even though I love a great love song-and Here We Go is a great love song- I am not one who enjoys a sappy written love story. Does that make sense?
Lysandre is out January 15th via Fat Possum.
