Christopher Owens has always been quite the busybody in the indie rock scene. Aside from his brilliant solo work, he’s given us music as frontman of now defunct rock band Girls, too. The San Francisco resident now returns with a new project named Curls and news of a debut EP named Vante, from which he presents frayed garage rock chugger Emotion. The dusty crunching jam urges us to let it all hang out, instead of building walls around us and bottling our emotions up. Because it’s what makes us beautiful. Curls’ Vante EP arrives November 7th via Urban Scandal.

Oh my, this is lovely. Christopher Owens quit his band Girls not too long ago to pursue a solo career. The fruits of the new labor, his debut solo LP, Lysandre, will release on January 15 in the US on Fat Possum. Today, the man previewed two acoustic cuts off that debut and they’re gorgeous, introspective tracks. Stream Lysandre’s Theme (the intro) and Here We Go (38 secs in) above. The album is somewhat a concept album as it supposedly follows Owens on a road trip across the world from San Francisco to France with stops along the way. At his destination, he falls in love with a girl by the name of Lysandre. I wonder how much of this is romanticized and how much of it is truth not fiction. Also, check out this great pitchfork.tv video where Chris performs tracks in a bathtub in Vegas and get ready to feel real sappy…
