    Really looking forward to this album and hearing however The Tallest Man and Bon Iver contributed.

    God this is so good. How this guy writes song structures like this will forever be beyond me.

    I would kill to be able to just throw together a structure like that. Jesus. Listened to the first Owen album last night, it's amazing. I think I might really love this project, probably shouldn't have slept on it for this long.

    If I'm reading correctly it appears that the Bon Iver/Tallest Man connection is from S. Carey, who produced the record? Could be totally wrong but that's all I found.

    Whoa, S. Carey produced this? Consider me fucking super in.

    This is part of the press release:

    "Where Owen’s prior outings were almost entirely performed by Kinsella on his own, Carey brought in some of the Badger State’s finest players to add new flesh to his bare-boned songcraft. Kinsella, as usual, is up front on guitar, vocals, bass, drums, and bells, accompanied by Carey (keyboards, vocals, drums, bells) and such WI musicians as Zach Hanson, who also served as engineer on the record, violist Michael Noyce, pedal steel guitarist/keyboard player Ben Lester, horns player Andy Hofer, and bassist Jeremy Botcher, all of whom share credits including Bon Iver, S. Carey, and The Tallest Man On Earth. Together the combo crafts an expansive but still grounded backdrop for Kinsella’s candid confessionals."

    It's way too late, or much too early Prestigious

    Mike Kinsella and Sean Carey working together is something of my dreams.

  15. Cody Prestigious

    Haha, didn't you say that about the other track released off this record too? Or was that this one, just in the Owen thread.
  16. That post was about this one too. Haha

    D'oh! Prestigious

    Woah what, Sean Carey produced?! I'll need to listen to the single in a second, but this is a weird combo and that's awesome to hear there are Tallest Man and Bon Iver dropped somehow onto that album!

    Well, it's just wonderful!
