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, choosing instead to record at Semaphore Studios with cousin Nate Kinsella (Birthmark) and Engine Studios with Brian Deck (Iron & Wine).

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.

The end result is At Home with Owen, a welcome extension to the lineage of Owen's music. It is an album that reaches a new depth -- swaying between organic overtures and fervent, lush ballads.

Forget what you’ve been told about picture discs having lower audio quality — all Polyvinyl Picture Disc Editions are pressed using a unique process known as Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM), which provides more accurate reproduction of high frequencies and less background noise.
