As a special bonus, here is "Little League" by Cap'n Jazz, from their retrospective Analphabetapolothology, released in 1998 from Jade Tree Records. You can grab that MP3 off their website...
Earlier this month, Owls announce their first new LP in 13 years, due out in March 25, 2014, on Polyvinyl Records.
Over 20 years ago, Tim Kinsella, Mike Kinsella, Victor Villarreal, and Sam Zurick formed Cap'n Jazz as teenagers, and they continued as Owls in 2001. Well, before you knew it, the band got back together and recorded their new Two album. And yes, that is Oasis' Noel Gallagher on their cover artwork, looking bloodied.
Why now, you ask? Well after their Cap'n Jazz reunion tour in 2010, everyone started talking about continuing on with the reunion-thing. As they talked about it, they realized what they really wanted to do was another Owls album, and it was finalized when Zurick moved back to Chicago in February of 2012.
Hear "I'm Surprised...":
No tour dates are announced, but with the album being released around SXSW time (March), I would not be 'surprise' to hear a tour coming up...

Howling Owl is the new record label by Joe and Adrian. The two share their love of fanzines, silk-screening, art, photography, print, and mixtapes, and decided to launch a music label. The small company wants to follow the footsteps of other labels like Subpop and Rough Trade.
The first official bulb/Howling Owl venture will be the debut release for Silver Waves; the new project from seventeen year old guitarist and noise maker Dylan Mallet. EP1 came out last week (January 20th, 2014) and contained two instrumental compositions of experimental and ambient noise - the first of three cassettes.
They didn't send me a lot of information on this Australian band called The Owls. The band is fairly new, having only formed last year (2013), but they've already rubbed elbows with established acts like The Cribs, The Jezabels, DZ Deathrays, and Ball Park Music, just to name a few.
They've recently released "Kraków", the first song from forthcoming EP, Own the Streets.
