Mark Kozelek and Jimmy LaValle - By The Time That I Awoke
This song has really been doing something for me. Just the combination of Kozelek’s delivery with Jimmy LaValle (The Album Leaf) at the helm of the mellow electro accompaniment. Just good stuff.
At times it is almost slightly awkward with the cadence of the lyrics to the music but it totally works. Even with having to use headphones at times to hear all of Koz’s voice due to his method of sounding completely uninterested with anything involved with singing. ;-)
There will be a vinyl offering in a month or so as well. Keep an eye out here: Caldo Verde Records
Got some grainy love for a Will Johnson helmed song. Overseas is a new collaborative effort of David Bazan, Will Johnson, Bubba Kadane, Matt Kadane. The new self-titled album is out a day after my birthday on June 11th. Just sayin’.
Received my copy of J. Tillman’s Minor Works the other day from the good folks at Action Records in Lancashire, UK. And since you brought it up, it is one the best sounding vinyl LPs I have heard in a long time. I may be biased due to the album material, but still…
Just keepin’ you all up to date on recent purchases as I know you want to know such things. I didn’t even realize this album had a vinyl release until about a month ago. To think I call myself a true fan of Tills…
This upcoming Graveface Records Jason Molina tribute is going to be pretty sweet (first teaser track is from Mark Kozelek above). I am not sure ‘sweet’ is the right word due to the nature of the album, but you get what I am saying.
Kozelek, who you may know as Red House Painters or Sun Kil Moon, covers the track ‘It’s Easier Now” and it shows a lot of promise for what is to come from this release. Names like Damien Jurado, Will Johnson, Phil Elverum, John Vanderslice and Jonathan Meiburg are currently on board as well.
