Hi, guys. It's been a while to come here. Just wanna share some pics and words about Owen's Asian tour. I went to his show in Seoul last Friday. It was amazing. He plays guitar by himself. I've never seen/heard he plays guitar at his shows so i was quite surprised but sounds so beautiful. The new songs are just pretty and newly-arranged old songs were also beautiful.
After the show I could get his autographs on some cds but couldn't have much talk. However Owen said my "Has a good home" is one of the first 100 pressings. I didn't know about it at all. Does this pressing have any differences from other pressings? I just bought it when I was in Toronto around 2005 I guess.
Oh, he also said the new album might be out late this year or next year. Hope I can see his show again soon.
Owen you can come back anytime and stay longer! Thanks for the great night!
That sounds like an amazing show, I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing the pictures and details I've seen the clips on instagram and they all sound so gorgeous <3
Does your copy of Has A Good Home have exclamation marks on the front cover? (I saw a photo of a signed copy of that version on instagram - was that yours?) I think the version with the exclamation marks is the rare original pressing - most copies don't have them! There's a version with a fold-up cover and no exclamation marks, and a reissue which doesn't have the fold-up cover. There's also a European version released by Tomlab, which is a jewelcase CD with only 15 tracks.
Thanks Cat. I guess you saw my posting on instagram. Mine has those exclamation marks. It is rare one then. Hummmm. I need a safety box now. For me, those guitar sounds were also a bit like Sigur Ros-ish noizy and dreamy. It was really coooooool.
