It's been four years since Owen Pallett stopped by KEXP for a live in-studio, four long years. Although he's grown a beard, Pallett's new music could be described as clean-shaven, bare in its autobiographical revelations. His latest material even includes his phone number! In between performances of songs both new and old, Pallett and DJ El Toro engage in a refreshingly candid discussion that touches on mental illness and creativity, isolation and exclusion. Watch and listen as the music slides into discord, as it loops and lingers long after the song ends. Don't stay away so long, Owen Pallett – we've got your number and we're going to start calling you if you don't come back soon.
