The ex-frontman of San Francisco outfit Girls, Christopher Owens left guitar-driven rock band-dom behind to dive into sumptuous orchestral pop on his solo debut, Lysandre. The heavy melodic lifting formerly carried out by electric six-strings in Owens's songs is currently being handled by PBS-evoking pan flutes, warm vintage keyboards, and heavenly female harmony vocals on record. While Owens's instrumentation may have softened up and smoothed out, his lyrics remain as prickly and tortured as ever.
