My Top Ten Albums of 2017 #5

Three albums for the price of one today, from the most prolific man in music... Mark Kozelek.

5. Sun Kil Moon - Common as Light and Love Are Red Valleys of Blood

More neurotic, sarcastic, confrontational - yet weirdly touching - stream-of-consciousness ramblings via synths, guitar, beats* and jazz**.

(*Particularly on the second album; **particularly on the third.)

5. Jesu & Sun Kil Moon - 30 Seconds to the Decline of Planet Earth

Diary / travelogue / rap / stand-up / confessional or bizarre fringe podcast? The garrulous barfly you don't mind listening to.

5. Mark Kozelek with Ben Boye & Jim White

Breaking boundaries and forcing the question: "Is this music?" It's an acquired taste that soon becomes addictive.***

(***For me, at least. Your mileage may vary.)

More here. And here.

Next: nobody likes him, everybody hates him, but he's never going to eat worms.


  1. Dear Rol

    I humbly request, in the fullness of time, a Mark Kozelek ICA.

    Best wishes


    (go on, count the words in the above letter!!)

    1. Dear JC,

      I have a list of future ICAs pinned to my noticeboard. Adding another one...
