Another step toward a new musical direction should come as no surprise to those who have followed Owen‘s songwriting evolution from sparse acoustic offerings (on his self-titled debut) to lush, string-filled arrangements (At Home With Owen). With production by Brian Deck (Iron & Wine) and Neil Strauch (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy), the songs on Ghost Town become as beautifully fleshed-out as Kinsella finds the lyrical apparitions he confronts to be frustratingly lacking substance.
LP is pressed on heavyweight 180g virgin vinyl and comes in a matt-finsh jacket, insert and download code for 320 kbps MP3 copy of the album. Each copy is hand-numbered.
