Now that singer-songwriter Christopher Owens has elected to end his indie-rock band Girls, he has released a concept album of sorts about being in the indie-rock band Girls. The LP, Lysandre, recants how Owens fell in love with a woman named Lysandre (referred to, of course, as a girl in the press release) while touring for the group's debut, Album, and ultimately how that relationship didn't work out. Despite sounding heady, a healthy dose of acoustic guitars, flute, and Owens's hushed vocals keep it from becoming heavy. With Melted Toys.
