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.
