Video Clip of the Week: Owen Pallett at SXSW

One artist that I failed to mention in my Best/Worst of SXSW 2011 blog is Owen Pallett, which is really a shame considering what a great show he put on.  I was thoroughly impressed with how he was able to take the songs on “Heartland” and perform them via his trusty loop pedal. I’ve seen him work his magic in the past, when he was still Final Fantasy, but the songs on “Heartland” are much more complex with intricate string arrangements and a cavalcade of trumpets and timpani drums.  But as you can see in the video clip I filmed of him playing “Lewis Takes Action”, Owen is still able to somehow pull it all off.
