Owen aka Mike Kinsella (American Football, Joan of Arc) returns with five new songs that are as wry and biting as ever.
Kinsella is joined by Cale Parks on vibraphone, Bob Hoffnar (Norah Jones, Ryan Adams) on pedal steel, Jen Tabor on cello and violin, and Paul Koob (Joan of Arc) on vibraphone and violoncello.

3Breaking Away (3:22)
4That Mouth (6:45)
6I Woke Up Today (2:26)
Lyrically and musically, Kinsella came through once again.
Kinsella retains his signature soothing vibe but expands just enough to give (the ep) a fresh taste.
The songs are beautiful, mellow and distinct.
On his latest, a five-song effort titled (the ep), Kinsella beautifully knits together the swirling, atmospheric noodling of his self-titled debut with the more focused acoustic pop of 2002's No Good For No One Now
