Owen Pallett made wonderful, genre-defying music under the name Final Fantasy, then began recording albums like last year's In Conflict under his own name. He sings, composes and arranges songs marked by elaborately looped sounds, particularly violin lines.

Pallett has toured extensively with Arcade Fire, on whose albums he's contributed dating back to Funeral. In 2014, he was nominated for an Academy Award for his work on the score to the film Her. This appearance on World Cafe features songs from In Conflict.
