As its title suggests, New Leaves is a new beginning for Mike Kinsella. Retaining elements of earlier Owen material — but here, the arrangements are more elaborate, the song structures more complex, and the lyrics more refined. Instead of lamenting failed relationships, Kinsella focuses on the new beginnings they allow.
