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.

Despite its title, on At Home With Owen Chicago’s Mike Kinsella (American Football, Joan of Arc, Cap’n Jazz) literally leaves the at-home bedroom that has witnessed the making of so much of Owen‘s past musical output. Along the way he finds true love, gains (and then loses) some weight, subscribes to cable television and experiences the death of a parent. And then he writes a record about the process — one that details, as only Mike can, the many challenges life throws our way.
