Owen Pallett may not go by Final Fantasy anymore, but he sure hasnt lost any of his inner nerd. This is the same guy that wrote an album based around the schools of magic in Dungeons and Dragons, the guy who wrote tracks called Adventure.exe and Cockatrice. And Heartland falls along the same lines, though in an intensely meta way. Essentially, its a concept album about Pallett himself creating a sometime shirtless, rugged yet deranged farmer named Lewis, and falling in love with him. If that sounds a little too complex, geeky or literary for you, dont fret. Palletts masterful composition, violin-work and looping are enough to sate music nerds that dont go in for post-modern narratives.
