"The term "Ownlife" was an idea introduced by author George Orwell in his classic book, 1984. The word is defined as such: "Ownlife refers to the tendency to enjoy being solitary or individualistic, which is considered subversive. Winston Smith comments that even to go for a walk by oneself can be regarded as suspicious."The EP is currently available for free or "name your price" over on the groups Bandcamp page, while limited edition CD's will be released sometime later. Definitely check this out.

Apollo's Sun and The Boomjacks - The Ownlife Sessions, Vol. 1
"The Ownlife Sessions" is a small collection of tunes by York, Pennsylvania lyricist Apollo's Sun and Finnish production duo The Boomjacks. The music on the EP could be described as abstract hip-hop or indie hip-hop and it's really dope throughout.
