Be lucky! Domino had this to say on the third Final Fantasy full-length (and the first for Domino): "Heartland is the product of nine months of work in four countries. It is a fully orchestral record, designed to exist simultaneously as an album, a 45-minute piece of orchestral music and a set of songs for looped violin and voice." - Sounds pretty good to me. Too easy? Final Fantasy will also be performing at the Union Chapel in London on January 25th, with further dates for March 2010 to be announced soon. Tickets are available here! Owen Pallett himself had this to say about his latest effort: "The songs themselves form a narrative concerning a farmer named Lewis and the fictional world of Spectrum. The songs are one-sided dialogues with Lewis, a young, ultra-violent farmer, speaking to his creator. The album was compositionally modeled upon the principles of electronic music. The principles of analog synthesis informing symphonic writing, like an inversion of a Tomita record. These songs, too, were designed to be as dense with polyphony as the Final Fantasy live shows can become. While writing it, I kept an image in my head of putting so many notes on the page that the paper turned black. This record encapsulates a whole year of work for me, and was difficult to see through, but I'm immensely proud of the results. I hope you enjoy it." - Sounds good to me!
