Sun Kil Moon to release new album in May

By ; February 10, 2012 at 7:12 PM 

Mark Kozelek, one of the most prolific and consistent singer songwriters in indie rock, will release a new album this May entitled Among The Leaves. It is the fifth album Kozelek has released under the Sun Kil Moon moniker and apparently "finds Mark relaxed, singing playfully about his life as a musician while retaining the melancholic spirit of his 20 year catalog." The 17-track album was recorded between October and January in San Francisco, mostly on Mark's nylon string guitar. The album was apparently recorded "impulsively" which has brought out a "more raw and humorous side of Mark’s songwriting." The album is out on May 29th and you can read more about it at the Caldo Verde Records site. The track list is below. UPDATE: Watch a high-quality recording of Kozelek performing "Sunshine in Chicago" below. The song follows a performance of "Heron Blue." If you want to skip straight to it, it starts just after the 6 minute mark. The video is from last week's Shivering Songs festival in New Brunswick, Canada. Among The Leaves track list: 01.
