Owls announce tour, streaming new LP; American Football reissuing LP with bonus material (dates & streams)

by Andrew Sacher

Owls

Influential indie rockers Owls (featuring 4/5 of Cap’n Jazz) are back with their second album, Two, which came out today (3/25) via Polyvinyl and follows their 2001 debut. If you haven’t heard that album yet, you can stream it in full below. The band may have been away for 13 years, but its members have been far from inactive, so it shouldn’t be much of a surprise that they still sound natural playing together.

Owls also just announced a short tour in support of the new album which brings them to NYC for a show on July 11 at Bowery Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (3/28) at noon. All dates are listed below.

In related news, one of Mike Kinsella’s other old bands, American Football, will reissue their excellent (and only) album, 1999’s American Football, on May 20 via Polyvinyl. The reissue comes with a bonus disc of rare material. You can check out the tracklist, and listen to one of those rarities, “Untitled #1 (The One With The Trumpet) [Boombox Practice Session, 1998],” below.
