!! OMG, download a new Owen Pallett song ‘A man with no ankles’ !!

Erudite indie pop darling Owen Pallett turned 31 yesterday and to celebrate he made the joyous opening number from his forthcoming A Swedish Love Story EP available for free download. According to a statement posted on his record label’s website, this EP finds the performer in an uncharacteristically “posi” frame of mind:

To contrast Heartland’s convoluted record process, and also to cut myself a break, I recorded this EP in New York City over a week, using not much more than my violin, my Moog, a bass and a drum kit. It’s closer in sound to my first album Has A Good Home than anything else. It’s called A Swedish Love Story in tribute to one of my favourite films En Karlekshistoria and as a love letter to the Swedish pop stars who inspired it. This is probably the most posi record I’ll ever make, enjoy the mood while it lasts.
