Final Fantasy Reveals Concept Album, Tours with Mountain Goats

Final Fantasy 1

Owen Pallet, aka Final Fantasy, has been working on his third full-length LP, Heartland, since November 2008 but I have a feeling the idea has existed for much longer.

"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," Pallet said.

The album is a fully orchestrated 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. Heartland will be out Jan. 12, 2010 on Domino Records.

Final Fantasy will be on tour with The Mountain Goats this fall and will land in our fair city on November 18, 2009 at Antone's.
