the london producer and singer kelly lee owens released an outstanding self-titled album earlier this year, a pulsating collage of electronica replete with an homage to arthur russell and a collaboration with jenny hval.  as if that album’s ten songs weren’t enough of a gift, owens today released an extended version, with three additional tracks in tow.

“spaces” is part of that addendum.  armed with a descending motif that meanders towards its destination and owens’ exacting lead vocal, “spaces” is a chilly slow-jam, content with pausing at sparse plateaus before continuing its plunge to cavernous depths.  listen below.
