Owen aka Mike Kinsella (American Football, Joan of Arc) returns with five new songs that are as wry and biting as ever.

Kinsella is joined by Cale Parks on vibraphone, Bob Hoffnar (Norah Jones, Ryan Adams) on pedal steel, Jen Tabor on cello and violin, and Paul Koob (Joan of Arc) on vibraphone and violoncello.

The songs are beautiful, mellow and distinct.
