The Mark Kozelek/Sun Kil Moon/Red House Painters thread

This thread prompted me to listen to all of that album... Kinda speechless at how little fucks is given by MK any more, even down to being bad Codeine "groovy bass jams" for 150+ minutes with so little variation and sooooo many callbacks as if this was the Captain America: Civil War chapter of SKM mixed with Magnetic Fields at his most alienated. 

 

I came close to buying it anyway precisely because this album seems so unpopular right now and the shelf-life of the songs seem to be six months which makes this an amazing time capsule of 2016 going into 2017.

Like, I'll admit that it took a while before benji clicked with me. But this is like ... near Wesley Willis level songwriting.  I'm hoping it's all just some prank and he snaps out of it. Or we find out he has some kind of mental disorder or something. Then it'll make sense .

Pre-order up at Bull Moose for a few bucks less than the Caldo Verde pre-order. I'd do a cancel/re-order but, meh, the money's already spent: http://www.bullmoose.com/p/25078893/sun-kil-moon-common-as-light-love-are-red-valleys-of-blood-4lp
