Info for Between Stones
Following the ‘suburban loner folk’ of 2016’s Winter Tape EP, Owen Tromans returns with Between Stones, a wide-ranging new set of songs recorded with long-time collaborator Joe Bennett of Goldrush and Co-Pilgrim. On this new album, lush chamber folk vibes sit alongside long, winding narratives and ruminations on landscape and myth.

grew up in The Black Country and led John Peel favourites San Lorenzo before pursuing a solo career that has seen him release several acclaimed albums and tour extensively, playing with the likes of Best Coast, Mumford & Sons, Idlewild and Plush.
Owen has also appeared on records with Devendra Banhart, Mercury Rev, Bardo Pond and members of REM and Sonic Youth, most notably "Chamber Music" on Fire Records. The Observer singled out Owen's contribution to the compilation for its "Steely acoustic guitar with lashings of romantic sentiment."
Tromans has always mixed fiery electric music with stark acoustics, most notably on 2009's song cycle "The Fall of Acre" which chronicled the further adventures of the recurring characters that populate his songs.
This album contains no booklet.
