Mark Kozelek With Petra Haden

Joey Always Smiled

    Mark Kozelek teams up with violinist and singer Petra Haden for a new LP called Joey Always Smiled. Along with Haden, it features contributions from Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley, character actor Kevin Corrigan, regular Kozelek collaborator Ben Boye, and more. And following six originals with very Kozelekian song titles, the record closes out with a folky, beautifully spare cover of Huey Lewis & The News’ immortal Back To The Future soundtrack hit ‘The Power Of Love”

    Sun Kil Moon

    I Also Want To Die In New Orleans

      Having always been a fairly enigmatic figure, it's hard to pin down a particular style on Red House Painter and known astral violence enthusiast, Mark Kozelek. We had the downplayed beauty of 2014's 'Benji', dealing with Kozelek's relationship with his father and place in the world before a host of collaborations with a huge variety of figures at various echelons of the underground instrumental / experimental circuit (Limmy LaValle of The Album Leaf and Justin Broderick of Godflesh / Jesu / etc being a couple of my favourites). Though these collaborative endeavours were fruitful, it has always been the 'solo' efforts that have been the most quintessentially recognisable, and this newest outing is no exception. 'I Also Want To Die In New Orleans' continues the singular artistic vision of Sun Kil Moon and is a worthy addition, full of lyrical delights and plenty of the trademark gloom.

        STAFF COMMENTS

        Barry says: Kozelek has never been the most chipper of fellas, but it has to be said that he's capable of writing a good tune. Expect gravelly vox, slow-mo acousticry and jazzy-blues flourishes surrounding the languid, flowing rhythms.

        Jesu / Sun Kil Moon

        30 Seconds To The Decline Of Planet Earth

          Sun Kil Moon is an American folk rock act from San Francisco, California, founded in 2002. Initially a continuation of the defunct indie rock band Red House Painters, Sun Kil Moon is now the primary recording moniker of vocalist and guitarist Mark Kozelek. The project is named after the Korean lightweight boxer Sung-Kil Moon.

          Jesu is a British experimental band formed in 2003 by Justin Broadrick following the breakup of his band Godflesh. It is named after the last song on Hymns, the final album of Godflesh's initial run. Jesu's sound is heavily layered and textured, incorporating a diverse mix of influences. Broadrick himself has stated that "it's very loosely speaking pop/rock/ metal /electronica.

          The original self-titled collaborative album was first hinted at in an interview with Mark Kozelek in the January 2015 issue of Uncut magazine and finally confirmed on twitter later that year.That album grew out of a long-standing relationship between Broadrick and Kozelek. Kozelek first approached Broadrick in 2007 about a release through his label, after being impressed by a live performance in San Francisco. In 2009 Jesu released Opiate Sun through Caldo Verde Records (owned by Kozelek), and later the same year Broadrick interviewed Kozelek for the Caldo Verde website. In 2013, Kozelek covered Broadrick's band Godflesh's song "Like Rats". Broadrick and Godflesh are mentioned in "The Possum", the opening track from Sun Kil Moon's 2015 album Universal Themes

            Heirlooms Of August

            Forever The Moon

              This debut album features 10 songs written by Jerry Vessel, formerly of Red House Painters and recently a touring member of Sun Kil Moon.

              After residing in San Francisco for a number of years, Vessel returned to California's San Joaquin Valley to find a new home in a familiar place. Inspired by the rural surroundings in which he now lives, Vessel found the time and solitude to reflect and to write, the result being Heirlooms of August's 'Forever the Moon'.

              Over the years Mark Kozelek of Sun Kil Moon and his earlier band, Red House Painters, has gained well deserved praise for his extraordinary songwriting. At the same time he has developed a parallel reputation for his unique covers of other people's material Many of these tracks were recorded for tribute albums that are now unavailable. Caldo Verde Records has now collected them in a cohesive, 10-song LP titled "The Finally LP". Highlights include a bluegrass version of "Lazy" by Low, "Bedtime Lullaby" from the children's show Yo Gabba Gabba! and an intimate, acoustic version of Stephen Sondhiem's "Send In the Clowns" recorded for the Minneapolis Bridge Disaster Benefit CD. The album also includes radio show rarities, a previously unreleased version of Husker Du's "Celebrated Summer" and two original instrumentals.
