really amazing new album...maybe better than April. So why is April not on this site?
4 Aug 2010, 6:50pm
I was also wondering where I could find lyrics for Admiral Fell Promises.
4 Aug 2010, 7:10am
any chance of find new album lyrics?
3 Aug 2010, 7:09am
new album rules
31 Jul 2010, 9:37am
wtf! I must have overlooked that passage...this is kind of embarrassing^^

The interview is the one linked below! Q: OK, let’s get a few out of way so you can stop answering these questions. By issuing an album as ‘Sun Kil Moon,’ what does that represent? A: Honestly, more sales. I'll sell 1/3 or 1/4 the amount if I call it 'Mark Kozelek.' There's momentum with the ‘Sun Kil Moon’ moniker that my own name doesn't have.
30 Jul 2010, 6:14pm
He released it under Sun Kil Moon as it would sell more and get more attention, he said that in an interview I read somewhere. I'll try and find a link.

@Katamai: good question! Only hint I can find is this quote: "But I really fell in love with this record by Segovia. It's just called Segovia, composed by Tansman, Federico Mompou, and Maria Esteban de Valera. It was then that I decided, for my next record, that I wanted to play guitar and sing as beautifully as I could. With the classical guitar, the whole range of sounds is covered. Bass and drums would have swamped up the sound of this record. I wanted it to have the feel of those old classical guitar records." from here: http://www.caldoverderecords.com/interview.htm (great (official) interview btw) though this is not really an answer to your question...

Just one thing Im wondering. Why release the album under the Sun Kil Moon-name and not just "Mark Kozelek"? To get more listeners, sell more albums?
29 Jul 2010, 7:10pm
Was really sceptical towards a WHOLE album with only Mark and an acoustic guitar. And at first listen the songs sounded really similiar and boring to say the least. But now after a few spins it's really wonderful. Give it a chance - you won't regret it!

I feel so dumb, I had heard "Carry Me Ohio" years ago in "Shopgirl" and meant to look up the artist T_T at least I found it again
27 Jul 2010, 10:38pm
@w0bbEl "technical math folk" ....that's the funniest thing I read about AFP....this perfect parody made my day :)
26 Jul 2010, 7:59pm
What's with all the herping and derping? Stop this nonesense! Alas I'm about to start up Admiral Fell Promises for the first time.
26 Jul 2010, 3:05pm
Re: Jlectric. Admiral Fell Promises was also my first Mark Kozelek experience. I feel that sense of giddy excitement you get at the beginning of a romance.
24 Jul 2010, 10:40pm
Admiral Fell Promises is clearly one of the best records this year so far! Totally love it.
23 Jul 2010, 8:12am
I'm at my fourth track of Admiral Fell Promises. It's my first encounter with Sun Kil Moon. I am utterly grasped.
23 Jul 2010, 12:04am
WOW WHAT A NICE REFORM INTO FUCKING LAME.
22 Jul 2010, 6:09pm
LePlatypope: Herp derp herp HERP DERP HERP DERP DERP HERP.
22 Jul 2010, 4:29pm
BLAH BLAH BLAH UNTILYOUREFORM NEEDS TO REFORM INTO INTERESTING.
22 Jul 2010, 8:18am
People seem to forget that Mark Kozelek is classically trained, hence the tendency to want to "play more" than people want to hear. I personally think he's a very talented songwriter and echoes his 20th century classical guitar influences very tastefully.
21 Jul 2010, 10:40pm
I'll take FUCKING GORGEOUS for $1000, Alex.
21 Jul 2010, 3:26am
haha wow the jackson five cover is pretty awesome.
21 Jul 2010, 12:48am
You are my sun - is life saving kind of songs. Bravo
21 Jul 2010, 12:45am
This new album is something fresh anyway. I waited for it patiently and i'm not disappointed. Once again it does not show all the beauty and the depth it has right from the first hearing. It will take some time to feel and accept this amazing piece of work
20 Jul 2010, 8:09pm
admiral fell promises is amazingly beautiful.
20 Jul 2010, 12:10am
*le sigh* why is Amazon.com NOT selling AFP as an .mp3 album? I've been checking every day since the release date.
19 Jul 2010, 9:08am
I was ironic eonblut17. Love that new record and can't understand why people don't like it only because of the increased focus on his awesome guitar skills I mean wtf.
19 Jul 2010, 8:35am
April is propably my favourite album of the last five years, along with [album artist=John Frusciante]The Empyrean[/album]
19 Jul 2010, 6:21am
April is amazing and people dont seem to notice
19 Jul 2010, 3:25am
AFP doesn't suck. I agree I think sometimes he plays guitar a little too much and several of the songs feel as if they should end a little sooner. It's also a little disappointing there's none of that Crazy Horse-ish electric sound on here, but still, it's a good listen. Alesund is unbelievable, Australian Winter? You can still like him.
19 Jul 2010, 3:16am
wats an April
19 Jul 2010, 3:08am
Why does everyone behave as if April never happened? It's not even listed on the Albums page here.
18 Jul 2010, 9:25pm
18 Jul 2010, 8:39pm
but he barely sings and only plays guitar and it's so complex it's barely listenable i can't like him anymore!
18 Jul 2010, 8:26pm
Technical math folk is the new chillwave. Get with the times bro.
18 Jul 2010, 7:55pm
man, AFP SUCKS it sounds like technical math folk WHERE'S THE F***IN HEART DUDE?
17 Jul 2010, 9:02pm
Those nylon strings suggest tired memes.
17 Jul 2010, 9:02pm
Not enough political insight/powerful drama.
17 Jul 2010, 8:59pm
Sorry Fetts I'm siding with my protege Sam on this one. Best Sun Kil Moon album. ISN'T SAYING MUCH CUZ THIS PROJECT SUCKS.
17 Jul 2010, 8:59pm
For once I can't work out if Jesus Esquith Christ is kidding or not, even tho "use his music to affect social change" is some straight-up Threepio shit. :'( Amused by the AtEase takeover of this shoutbox tho, it makes me question the very nature of my existence. Am I a boarder or a scrobbler? Where do my loyalties lie when worlds collide?
17 Jul 2010, 7:51pm
IT' FUCKING HOT
17 Jul 2010, 7:49pm
i disagree with wahdiohead. i think that this record is a bunch of BS. when i first got into kozelek i did so because he had passion and he seemed like someone who wanted to use his music to affect social change. but now he just noodles away and its like his songs dont even have anything to say to anyone but himself. its sad.
17 Jul 2010, 7:36pm
Ugh I dont see where this is coming from. He's improved as a guitarist tremendously, and he wants to show that he can play. So he goes on little tangents and that somehow detracts from his songwriting ability? Sorry, p. bullshit argument. If I recall, his last album had one more song and was about 14 minutes longer and no one called wankery. He writes as well as he ever did and the classical playing is a bonus.
17 Jul 2010, 1:39pm
I agree withTheUniversalMan, "Unfortunately, "good" guitar playing does not equal good songs". For me it's hard to top Carry Me Ohio, Lost Verses and many others... Yet it is not a fruitless exercise in listening. I think it will take me some time to get used to it. Kozelek is one amazing songwriter, who will continue to grow and write amazing shit.
17 Jul 2010, 1:50am
yo dude, you must be a riot at parties too
16 Jul 2010, 10:31pm
"HE'S NOT ROCK AND ROLLING ANYMORE :( :( :( I HATE HIM NOW>>>>>!!! " Just go somewhere else, but don't flood this shoutbox with utter nonsense. And by the way, TYPING LIKE THIS IS NOT REALLY ROCK AND ROLL EITHER.
16 Jul 2010, 4:43pm
i don't think it is.
16 Jul 2010, 3:59pm
Ghosts Of The Great Highway is utterly untoppable.
16 Jul 2010, 3:32pm
Possibly, but not really.
16 Jul 2010, 2:13pm
possibly the best release under the Sun Kil Moon moniker yet, yeah.
