Our ‘Song of the Day’ is from Sun Kil Moon, the moniker of Mark Kozelek who is probably best known for his previous incarnation in Red House Painters. Sunshine in Chicago is taken from his fifth studio album Among The Leaves which is released on May 29 via Caldo Verde Records which promises a more raw and humorous side of Mark’s songwriting.
Among The Leaves features an impressive number of tracks, 17 in total, all of which are original and played primarily on nylon string guitar.
Mark’s love for San Francisco and Northern California are at the heart of this new album. “My first album (Down Colorful Hill) was released in 1992” says Kozelek, “but creatively, I feel like I’m just beginning. The new album was written and recorded impulsively, without second guessing. I didn’t have that kind of confidence in the past.”
