Final Fantasy is...Heartland!

Known for his string arrangements and work in many bands like Beirut, Arcade Fire, Grizzly Bear, and even The Last Shadow Puppets, Owen Pallett, the man behind Final Fantasy, has made quite a name for himself in the indie genre. He is now back with his third album, Heartland, which is apparently a full fledged concept album. Knowing his previous works, this has to be good. It's being released on Domino, so hopefully that'll mean it'll be actually possible to track down at a store. It's due out January 12th, 2010 (same day as Contra by Vampire Weekend), so get ready for alot of good listening!

OH dear, this is going to be a good album. You can just tell by the song titles :)

Arnie: It is. Perhaps it'll be able to be found at your average cd store, not some under ground record shop in the village. Can't wait!
