Owls

As mentioned, the ever-influential Kinsella family are reviving their Owls project for a new album this year, their first since their 2001 debut. Owls, whose lineup includes Tim Kinsella, Mike Kinsella, Victor Villarreal, and Sam Zurick (all of whom were in Cap'n Jazz), have now revealed more details on that album: it's called Two and will be out on March 25 via Polyvinyl (pre-order). They've also revealed its first single, "I'm Surprised...," which you can stream, along with the artwork and tracklist, below.

No dates at the moment, but hopefully that will change soon. Stream below...

Owls

It's been discussed, but now it's official. Owls, the band whose lineup included almost every member of influential emo vets Cap'n Jazz and released only their one self-titled album in 2001, have announced that they're returning in 2014 with a second album! No title or release date yet, but we know it will be out via Polyvinyl Records, and the band just posted a teaser video with a clip of some new music that you can hear below.

One of Mike Kinsella's other bands, Their/They're/There, just played NYC at Knitting Factory last night (12/19) as part of their tour with Birthmark and Mansions. That band put out two EPs this year and Mike also released a new Owen album this year.

Meanwhile, Tim Kinsella released a new Joan of Arc album this year, and Victor Villarreal has been focusing on his solo project lately.

Mike Kinsella

Owen (aka Mike Kinsella) still hasn't announced anything regarding the new material he's promising, but he did just recently reveal that he's got a few Northeast dates scheduled for this March. None of them are in NYC but he'll be pretty close when he plays Hoboken's Maxwell's on March 23. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Mike and his brother/ex-Cap'n Jazz/Joan of Arc/Owls bandmate Tim Kinsella recently sat down together for Alarm Magazine's 'No Journalists Allowed' segment where they interviewed each other. It gets pretty funny when Mike asks Tim stuff like, "Do you feel your age?" and "Do you think that people think you're an asshole just because your music is challenging?" You can read the whole interview at Alarm's site.

A list of all dates and a video below...

Joan of Arc, the primary project of Tim Kinsella, is set to release his/their gazillionth album on November 27 via Joyful Noise (not Polyvinyl, who released most of their recent output). The album is self titled but also known as Charlie Chaplin and The Elephant Man and is made up mostly of Tim's acoustic guitar and voice. You can get your first taste of the album by watching the video for "King Song," which premiered today on Noisey, below. Also below is the album's cover art and tracklist.

Tim will be taking the album on a solo tour where he plans to perform in various living rooms across the US. That tour hits Brooklyn on November 5 and Asbury Park on November 7. Exact living room locations TBA. Tickets for the whole tour are on sale now.

Tim's brother Mike, aka Owen, just announced some shows too.

A list of all Joan of Arc dates, cover art, tracklist and video are below.

Cap'n Jazz

Jade Tree is thrilled to announce that one of our most influential and popular titles, Cap'n Jazz's seminal discography Analphabetapolothology, will be released on vinyl for the very first time on June 15th. A little over ten years have passed since the original CD release and we are proud to give the record the proper full featured vinyl issue that it deserves. As Cap'n Jazz has grown in popularity, so has the demand for the anthology on vinyl and we are more than happy to combine our efforts to put together a package well worth the wait...

There is more. As you may have heard, Cap'n Jazz played a short surprise set in January. Well, the show went so well that the band has decided to reunite again, starting at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago on July 17th with select dates soon to follow. This is a one time reunion and this summer will be your one chance to see the band live, so don't miss it. We'll see you there!

Video from that reunion show, which happened Friday, January 22nd as part of Joan of Arc's Don't Mind Control Variety Show at Chicago's Empty Bottle, is below. Time Out Chicago wrote of their four-song set: "Though the group's once-spastic youthful energy was slightly tempered with age, it was replaced with noticeably improved musicianship. Die-hard fans may have missed hallmarks of the group's heyday like Tim's trumpet honking, but the capacity audience didn't seem to mind the omission, opting instead to revel in the intense nostalgia of it all."

A track off the soon-to-be-on-vinyl Analphabetapolothology is above.Cap'n Jazz's next and only currently scheduled reunion show takes place July 17th at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago (same night and city as Pitchfork Music Fest). It's already sold out. Stay tuned for more dates to be announced including a show in NYC.

Joan of Arc, Tim Kinsella, put out Don't Mind Control on Polyvinyl in January. That album is "41+ members strong -- the Joan of Arc extended family comes together for 18 exclusive songs curated by Joan of Arc frontman Tim Kinsella. Joan of Arc Presents: Don't Mind Control features new songs by Tim Kinsella, Owen, Cale Parks, Vacations (ex-Chin Up Chin Up), Ghosts and Vodka (ex-Cap'n Jazz), Euphone, The Cairo Gang, and many more. All bands feature members who have played in Joan of Arc at one time or another."

Joan of Arc will be at SXSW for a show on Saturday, March 20th at Galaxy Room (formerly Radio Room).

Mike Kinsella also has upcoming shows as Owen; dates and videos are below...
