Owen Pallett is someone whose creativity can seem… sort of unfathomable. The Canadian songwriter and musician has an incredibly impressive resume, which includes a Grammy win for work on the Arcade Fire album The Suburbs , and an Oscar nomination for the score of the film Her. And then there’s Owen’s own award-winning music, which delves into disarmingly personal subject matter as well as fantasy. Owen’s latest album, Island, was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and it returns to a fantasy realm called Spectrum – a place first introduced on Owen’s earlier albums — and re-acquaints us with protagonists Lewis and Owen. In this session, you’ll hear Owen perform music from that new album, as well as songs from throughout Owen’s career. And if the list of accomplishments wasn’t enough to blow you away, just wait. What you’re going to hear are solo performances. Just Owen, using effects and looping to create layers of sound Copyright 2020 XPN. To see more, visit XPN .
DAVID BIANCULLI, BYLINE: This is FRESH AIR. I’m David Bianculli, editor of the website TV Worth Watching, sitting in for Terry Gross. “The Carol Burnett Show,” one of TV’s classic variety shows, ran on CBS from 1967 to 1978.

But “The Carol Burnett Show” ran for 11 years and, for a time, was part of what’s still thought of as the best night of television ever shown. It was a Saturday night lineup that began with “All In The Family” and “MASH,” continued with “The Mary
Bad Bunny closed his second album, YHLQMDLG , with a promise to return in nine months (so right about now) with another, which he also claimed would be his last. (In May, he released Las Que No Iban a Salir , a compilation of unreleased tracks and album cuts – a separate project.) And on Tuesday, Bad Bunny tweeted something we’ve seen before : a tracklist labeling each song a “TEMAZO,” as he did with the “PALOS” off YHLQMDLG and his 2018 debut X100 PRE . His third album, El Último Tour del Mundo , dropped right on time Friday night. Courtesy of the artist YHLQMDLG anthologized Benito’s love and reverence for old-school Puerto Rican reggaeton with thoughtful, deep-cut collaborations, a conscious disruption of the sterile reggaeton-lite formula that pervades modern Latin pop.
