Video of the Week: Owen Pallett/Final Fantasy

Owen Pallett as the one-man-band Final Fantasy. This clip will give you a good idea as to how he performs songs at concerts: building songs on pieces of themselves with help of a looping machine. The stark beginnings and robust endings are quite interesting to observe.

Want to see it live? Owen starts a U.S. tour in October with friend and sometimes-collaborator Cadence Weapon. More info can be found at his (fan-operated)
myspace page.*

"Took You Two Years to Win My Heart" off his debut album,
Has A Good Home:

*The listed opening date for the tour (Oct. 11) is wrong; the tour will begin Oct. 12 in Chicago.
