About this item
Domino is pleased to announce expanded, remastered reissues of Owen Pallett’s early catalogue, including albums Has A Good Home (2005) and He Poos Clouds (2006), as well as two EPs Spectrum, 14th Century and Plays to Please (both 2008) combined into one 12” full length release. These recordings have been remastered by João Carvalho at Revolution, and will be available on vinyl, and digitally as deluxe editions, with rare tracks, B-sides, music from compilations, and previously unreleased material.
The first EP that followed, Spectrum, 14th Century, is a “prequel” to Pallett’s celebrated album Heartland, set in the same fictional world of Spectrum. Pallett: “When I realized Heartland was going to be a ‘fantasy’ album, I imagined that the Spectrum EP would serve as a map of the countryside, as one would find in the first pages of a fantasy novel.”
The second EP, Plays to Please, is Pallett’s tribute to Van Dyke Parks’ arrangement style, and is their first foray into full orchestral production. In the spirit of Nilsson Plays Newman, it is a collection of interpretations of the works of songwriter Alex Lukashevsky.
