“From 10-minute, three-guitar jams, to heartbreaking acoustic ballads, April shines with the most evocative music of Kozelek’s career.”- Jonathan Cohen, Billboard

“Mark Kozelek returns with an album of rare warmth and immediacy, where intensely personal lyrics hang on hazily magnificent melodies.”- Aidin Vaziri, San Francisco Chronicle

“April”, the new album from Sun Kil Moon, is Mark Kozelek’s first original record since the acclaimed 2003 Sun Kil Moon debut “Ghosts Of The Great Highway”.

11 songs at almost 74 minutes, “April” is a collection of songs recorded between March and August 2007 in San Francisco (Hyde Street Studios) and Seattle (Well Recording). In the spirit of Sun Kil Moon’s “Ghosts” and “Tiny Cities”, Mark was joined by the same players as before,including drummer Anthony Koutsos (Red House Painters), bassist Geoff Stanfield (Black Lab), violist Michi Aceret, and percussionist David Revelli. “April” also finds Mark in the company of guest vocalists Bonnie Prince Billy, Ben Gibbard, and Eric Pollard (Retribution Gospel Choir).

“… sets a mood so effortlessly and has a seemingly endless supply of melt in your mouth melodies…” – Salon.com

Vinyl Films Records and Caldo Verde Records are proud to announce the vinyl debut of Mark Kozelek’s two limited edition live albums, White Christmas Live and Little Drummer Boy Live. The former, released in 2001 in a limited pressing of 5000 CDs, contains such Red House Painters classics as “Things Mean A Lot” and “Cruiser” along with AC/DC covers “What’s Next To The Moon” and “Up To My Neck In You.” Little Drummer Boy Live, released in 2006, marries such Sun Kil Moon greats as “Salvador Sanchez” and “Carry Me Ohio” with Modest Mouse covers “Tiny Cities” and “Trucker’s Atlas,” as well as the previously unreleased “Moorestown” and “Unlit Hallway.” Both releases are now compiled in one 4-LP boxed set, with the box including the vinyl-only bonus track “Have You Forgotten.” White Christmas Live has been long out of print on CD, and Little Drummer Boy Live is rapidly on its way as well. Now, you can have both in this impressive vinyl box set! The release will be limited to 1000 copies on black vinyl. An ultra-limited tour/internet-only pressing of 300 copies on white vinyl will also be available, exclusively at caldoverderecrords.com, auralexploits.com, and at Mark Kozelek live shows this fall.

Available at caldoverderecords.com, auralexploits.com and better record stores near you.

Comments Off

DukKooKimFrontCover

Vinyl Records, a division of Vinyl Films, is proud to announce their first record release. Mark Kozelek of Red House Painters fame returns with a haunting acoustic ballad entitled ‘Duk Koo Kim.’ Pressed on 10″ vinyl, this single is limited to 1,000 numbered copies worldwide and will NOT be released on compact disc. The a-side is as beautiful and ethereal as anything in Kozelek’s catalog, and the b-side is a stark, gorgeous live version of the title track.

The record should be in record stores by early February. Andy Fischer from Vinyl Films says that a few may even be sold on the Vinyl Films site if they can get that back up and running in time. A bit of the site is back up and I’ll keep you posted on further progress.
