What We're Listening To: Sun Kil Moon

Sun Kil Moon
Among the Leaves
Caldo Verde; 2012


Mark Kozelek (Red House Painters) has made another record that is being played ad nauseam in our household.  His increasingly masterful classical guitar work and stark, imagery-laden narratives are joined by a newfound sense of wry humor (exhibit A: "The Moderately Talented Yet Not So Attractive Middle Aged Man"). 


This is pitch-perfect late morning, bowl of oatmeal, sun-streaming through windows, post-nighttime revelry music.  Despite his lyrical protestations pertaining to the absurdity of being a touring musician, I sure hope he continues writing and playing his distinctive brand of existentialist folk.
