    Mike Kinsella’s various musical endeavours should need little introduction. From his early days with Cap’n Jazz right up the triumphant return of American Football, here’s a guy that’s more than made a lasting impression on a scene that while spawning countless imitators there have been few, if any, betters.

    Now back again and seemingly more prolific than ever, Mike returns with his long running solo project Owen. Easily his most intense album, The Avalanche is also the most beautifully crafted, resulting in nine of the best Owen songs ever penned and an album that’s as heartbreaking as it is magnificent.

In recognition of the Juneteenth holiday, Owen and BSM are making the entire Owen digital catalogue (including The Avalanche) pay what you want on Bandcamp for 24 hours (on Friday, June 19th), with 100% of the proceeds going to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

Additionally, instead of purchasing anything from the Owen/BSM store today, fans are encouraged to instead consider making a donation to one of the many invaluable organisations supporting the fight against racial injustice including Color of Change, the Equal Justice Initiative and The Loveland Foundation

Thank you!
