* * * * * Sun Kil Moon – Admiral Fell Promises * * * * *

Sun Kil Moon is the current project of singer-songwriter Mark Kozelek, best known for his previous band, Red House Painters. Sun Kil Moon sees Kozelek undertake all the writing, composing, singing and guitar playing accompanied by Tim Mooney and Anthony Koutsos [ also an ex-member of RHP ] on drums, and Geoff Stanfield on bass. The band is named after korean bantamweight boxer Sung-Kil Moon.

Their debut album, Ghosts of the Great Highway, was written entirely by Kozelek, and released by Jetset Records in 2003. It is an album centered around the theme of memory, connecting Kozelek’s haunting memories with the true-life stories of deceased boxers, such as featherweight champion Salvador Sanchez and flyweight Pancho Villa.

Kozelek’s music with Sun Kil Moon spans genres such as the simple acoustic country-folk of “Glenn Tipton” to the heavy, Crazy Horse-esque rock of ” Salvador Sanchez ” and the light-hearted ” Lily And Parrots ” onto the fourteen minute psychedelic tour de force ” Duk Koo Kim ” [ another homage to a deceased boxer ] and the beautiful and haunting ” Gentle Moon ” and ” Carry Me Ohio “.

Kozelek’s voice is now more flexible and less downcast than in his work with Red House Painters, resulting in a resonant and often beautiful album.

~~~~~~~~~ ( Exceptional acoustic work over haunting melodies that sure goes for fans of Mojave 3 ~ The Shins ~ Idaho and the likes. BEAUTIFUL FLAW.

I’m sure I had ” Tiny Cities ” and ” Ghosts of the Great Highway ” by them but I just can’t those titles anywhere on my pc or any of my external drive. Strange. Will have to look for these releases again. [ MySpace ] | [ Last.fm ] ). ~~~~~~~~
