Final Fantasy

Hello. Here's my late, last minute housekeeping:

Indie music scene kids might know Owen Pallet as a member of Montreal's The Arcade Fire, but he's got quite the solo act as well as Final Fantasy, (yes, named after the video game) with an exciting and innovative violin act. He recently (not so recently anymore) released a run of 7" EP's which include a rendition of Joanna Newsom's Peach Plum Pear. It's entitled Young Canadian Mothers.

If you hadn't figured it out, the small illustration is mine. The awesome print job is by the very talented Nicholas Kennedy at Trip-Print Press. It's available via the blue house, and you can find it at Rotate This and Soundscapes in Toronto.

Clicking here will eventually lead you here at Escapegoat Records.

And for everyone in town, note that Owen's playing at the Music Gallery April 9th as part of The Man Show. Click here for details!

and thanks to Owen and Patrick and Jenny.
and that's all.
