Re: Sun Kil Moon - April

I just pre-ordered my copy today. the first 2,008 (see what he did there haha) copies bought through the caldo verde website will have a four song bonus disc attached and each copy will be signed and numbered. the lp will be released later on through caldo verde/vinyl films. the four song ep will be released on a seperate vinyl later on in the year. the album will have guest appearances by Will Oldham, Ben Gibbard, and Eric Pollard. It clocks in around 74 minutes.

The anticipation for this album is killing me.

Re: Sun Kil Moon - April

The A.V. Club likes it -- they gave it an A-
Quote:
After spending a good portion of the '90s writing beautiful songs with Red House Painters, Mark Kozelek has made some interesting career choices, most notably devoting entire albums to AC/DC and Modest Mouse covers. Granted, Kozelek's drastically reworked versions come out sounding like his own songs, but it means that albums of original material have gone from special to momentous occasions. April, his third full-length under the Sun Kil Moon moniker, and the first made up of new songs since 2003, easily bears the weight of expectations, proving once again that he really does transcend any slowcore or singer-songwriter tags that have been tossed his way. Lyrically, memories of growing up in Ohio in "Lucky Man" and the bittersweet love story laid out in "Moorestown" find Kozelek in fine reflective form, and musically, he couldn't sound freer, moving from quiet solo ballads to string-filled dreaminess to full-band rock songs that remain gentle under the distortion. Assistants here include RHP drummer Anthony Koutsos, Death Cab For Cutie frontman Ben Gibbard, and Will Oldham, and the influence of listening to all of that Isaac Brock guitar pops up at the end of "Tonight In Bilbao," which competes with "Moorestown" and "Lost Verses" as the album's best song. It can be counted as one of the finest moments in a career that's littered with them.

Re: Sun Kil Moon - April

I just ripped this to my Zen tonight and went for a nice long walk with some headphones to take it in. It's great, but I still think Ghosts Of The Great Highway is better. Like The River is my current Song Of The Year.

I think this might be my new favorite album of '08.

Edit: actually, it probably isn't, but it's still great.

Yep, it came this morning.

The only thing I was disappointed about was Mark Kozelek's lazy autograph. All he did was wrote was "851 MK." Everything else about the album is fantastic though.

Re: Sun Kil Moon - April

I can't say I blame him for getting lazy with it, 2008 copies is a lot to sign, but I still couldn't help being disappointed by that part of the package. Not that I expected a personalized message or anything.

A live album, Lost Verses Live is out May 12:

Quote:

Mark Kozelek, the eternally bummed-out mastermind behind both Red House Painters and Sun Kil Moon, has some very devoted fans. I've never actually seen Kozelek live, but I get the feeling that his shows are the type where someone will shush you if you so much as order a beer. As such, Kozelek's live shows might be better home-listening experiences than night-in-stanky-rock-club experiences. And a pair of forthcoming live albums will bring that experience to actual homes, so feel free to blab incessantly while you listen. Or not.

On May 12, Caldo Verde will release Lost Verses Live, a 74-minute document of Kozelek's solo shows in four different American cities. Kozelek recorded the album during his 2007 and 2008 acoustic tours, playing shows with only longtime sideman guitarist Phil Carney as accompaniment. The tracklist leans heavily on his Sun Kil Moon material, but there's some Red House Painters stuff mixed in there as well. The album will be available digitally on May 1, and you can pre-order it right now. The vinyl version is due in June and will include live takes on "I Am a Rock", "Last Tide", and "Floating".

As a bonus, anyone who preorders anything from Caldo Verdo beginning today will get a whole 'nother Kozelek live album for free. Kozelek recorded Find Me Ruben Olivares in the Spanish cities of Barcelona and Zaragoza.

Pre-ordered yesterday. It tells me to expect to wait 30 days for delivery after shipping. Is it coming by rowing boat?

But I'm excited.

Oh lucky. I had notification a couple of days ago that mine had been shipped but I guess it'll take longer to the UK. I bet I get stung for Customs Duty too.
