‘Here We Go’, the five piece band Canary from Australia bring us their next single off their forthcoming LP “I Am Lion”. It’s a song that builds up self esteem and brings confidence to oneself while bracing for whatever may come, like a bird before it takes flight.

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…
