Easy Street Records

Vinyl LP pressing. Domino is pleased to announce a remastered reissue of Owen Pallett's early catalogue, including albums Has A Good Home (2005), He Poos Clouds (2006), and the two EPs Spectrum, 14th Century and Plays to Please (both 2008) combined into one 12" full length release. Pallett has built a reputation on live virtuosity, as violinist for the many local Toronto bands, followed by the wild looped-violin songwriting solo project. Has a Good Home serves as an introduction (and features many of Pallett's best-known songs), and the follow-up He Poos Clouds is a string quartet album based on the Dungeons & Dragons School of Magic, and was awarded the inaugural Polaris Music Prize. The first EP (side A) 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 (side B), 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.
