Cap'n Jazz at Brooklyn Bowl in 2010 (more by Leia Jospe)
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.
